  1. Thanks for sharing. Been trying to get my wife to get onboard with chicken rearing. We have over an acre of land in a rural setting but she is still a no go. Might just do it anyway and see how it goes. I want eggs, meat, and poop. How bout that not so sure about the meat part but the eggs and poop are a plus. I compost a lot of leaves and table scraps. I have several raised beds for planting. Right now I have cabbage collards onions and lettuce in. I live in Pensacola so we do have a somewhat mild winter. so far so good. Keep up the good work.


  2. Hi,

    I’m looking for days to get this theme of wordpress. I only find the versions with hasn’t got the custom header picture. Could you please send me an email with this theme?

    Thank you,

  3. Hi Julie!
    Finally had a moment off the trail to check this out – cool and beautiful! I love it -and love reading about your creative endeavors in gardening, cooking, chicken raising and line drying.
    Back on the trail tomorrow -be well!

  4. Love love love this!

    I think I read somewhere that marigolds can be planted as a border on a garden to minimize pests – I guess they’re stinky to insects. I’ve killed two cactuses this year, though, so don’t take my word for it.

    My mom has been pretty successful with her organic garden – I’ll put the two of you in touch.

    Love you!

  5. Wow Julie, I don’t know where you got the inspiration to raise chicks or become a gardner, as I remember it we lived in the city while you were growing up.

    I love all the pictures and your description of what you are going through.



  6. Wow. I can’t even keep a cactus alive. Although so far my daughter has survived for 7 weeks, so I guess anything is possible. Very impressive. Wanna come to the Riv and fix up my back yard? But we only want to grow one crop here… don’t worry, we have a prescription!!!

  7. Julie. This is so damn cute. That’s all I can say right now.

  8. Wow. This is amazing. Love the site and can’t wait to meet your backyard family.

  10. Jules! Wow! You amaze me all the time! Truly an inspiration to get out and do something with this yard of mine that is so bare…!

  12. Julie,

  13. To Julie – you are an inspiration! As a gardener and a writer. And a builder of chicken coops and rain barrels. And a friend.
