My "rustic" garden shed

Post  dixie on 8/3/2017, 12:33 pm

" />
I haven't been around in a while, but if any of you remember me, my hubby finally started building my rustic garden shed.  He got a bit carried away and now it is my jewelry/pottery studio.  It has a loft and hardwood flooring.  .....and it's PINK!  He also built a pink chicken house outback for my chickens.  Gotta love a good man.  

and to brag,  in 9 days we will be married 50 years!  God is good.

Pink chicken house

Post  dixie on 8/3/2017, 2:39 pm

The area needs cleaning up, but here it is.  I have 19 hens, Rhode Island reds & black sex links.  the pen area is completely covered & also on the inside of the housing area.  We have lost SO many chickens in the past to raccoons and weasels, there is no way for them to get in unless we leave the door or gate open.

Since I'm way off-track from SFG, I'm going to make my yearly posting to my garden blog & I'll put pictures there post here when it's done.  My blog is really a joke since I usually only post once or twice a year!

Dixie, Good to see you posting again. Do you have a "Dixie" thread on this Forum? Something like "Dixie's Garden"? Congrats on 50 years of marriage. I love you

Dixie, I laughed so hard after reading the story of Mr. Mable, and then being introduced to Mr. Molly, that I had to share it with my mother!

Beautiful life you gave going there. Smile

It is nice seeing you again, Dixie. I really enjoyed your blogs.
Ahhhh,,,, heavy sheet of plastic under the roost, what a fantastic idea! Cleaning under the roost is such a pain.

Dixie, You have so many posts that to merge them all in a single post would be very labor intensive and they would be like a shuffled deck of cards if done. That is, each post and reply would be listed by date and time of post and not make sense.

I enjoyed your blogs! Very Happy
