In the spring of 2016 we decided it was time we needed a green house. We had been collecting parts and pieces for the last year and finally had everything that we needed to put the green house together.

Here is the list of items needed and the cost for each:

Tempo frame: 20$ (Found at a garage sale)

Bolts, screws and tape: 50$ (Local COOP store)

Green house Plastic 24' x 24':  86$ (Les Serres Tessier)

Wiggle wire and track 40': 44$ (Les Serres Tessier)

Bug screen 36' wide: 15$ (Local COOP store)

Boards and 2" x 6"'s: (Milled ourselves)

Doors: Free, recuperated from a demolition project in our cottage.

Having no experience with green houses, we used the internet to source ideas for our build. Thank god for the internet and youtube. 

We stared of by leveling out the area where the green house was going to be and laying down the footing, in this case some 2x6's. We then drilled out notches in the 2x6's where the hoops were going to sit.

 La semaine passée les petits cochons et les poussins sont arrivés! Ils sont déjà tous très à l'aise et ils découvrent leur nouvel environnement. Puis, les agneaux peuvent enfin sortir dehors avec la chaleur. Vive l'été!!!

Last week we got our little piglets and chicks! They're already comfortable and happy to discover their new environment. Have a good summer!

L'été arrive vite vite vite... On prépare l'arrivée des cochons et des poulets sur la ferme pour le moi de mai. Les semis de légumes vont bien et le jardin est bientôt prêt être semé. Les vaches sont retournées sur les pâturages et notre jument Shadow a eu.... son premier poulain! =)

Summer is coming very fast... We're preparing for the arrival of the piglets and chicks in May. The seedlings are growing like mad, eagerly awaiting the warmer weather to head outside. The cows are out on pasture and the calves have just began arriving. 8 so far. And last but not least, our Quarter horse Shadow had her first foal, a bay Paint horse, just 2 days old now.

Nous nous sommes procurés des poussins d'un cousin à Jacob qui achète des oeufs fertiles de différentes races de poules pondeuses. Ameraucana est une race qui va pondre des oeufs d'une couleur bleu.

New arrivals. We purchased some day old Ameraucana chicks the other day from Goshendale Poultry. By summer we should be collecting a few blue eggs from our mobile chicken coop. So farm they are highly entertaining and growing like weeds! Thank you Trevor Paterson!
