Progress = Blisters

Today we finished clearing our spot. And bought some foundation stones and hardware cloth. Tomorrow I'll finish making it level and I'll lay down the cloth and put the stones exactly where I want them.

Here is my second best helper, Zoe:

Here was the last post that I just couldn't get out.

And then my first best helper and I finally got it. Yay!

After much earth-moving, and blisters, I finally got to lay out my stones to see if it was going to work for me. I think it will. 10' X 4' total, and the hen house/storage will be 4' X 4'.

Oh, and the girls got to try freshly dug earth worms today. I think it's their new favorite. Fantastic. Glad I have a 10-year-old boy to take care of those kinds of details.


  1. Can't wait to see next instalment and what sweet helpers you have!
    Is that a little studio in the rear of the last photo?

  2. Yes, that's my lonely little studio back there. I look forward to the day when i walk past my happy chickens to go melt glass ;)

  3. What amazing progress you are making, and so much hard work! I have a 10 year old as well but he's not as interested in my jewelry as my 8 year old.
