~ Happenings on the Homestead ~

I was busy last week , Tuesday I dug up a volunteer peach tree and replanted it in the garden area. Dh mowed the leaves to mulch them , and I've been raking and piling them up to use in the garden. We don't rake them in the Fall , we let them breakdown over the winter months , then mow and rake them , they're great for the garden.

Thought I would share a pic of DH working , he's building us a large grill. He's a welder by trade , he also enjoys welding small projects at home. He's very talented , he made me these blue roses awhile back , he was trying a tinting method , that turns them blue.

The next pic is garden bench he made , it was my Christmas gift. I 've been trying to figure out were I want to put it , probably near the garden and chicken coop. He still needs to make the seating.
I also got the chicken/guinea coop cleaned out last week too. Dh picked up the chicks on Sat. , they're cute as can be , more about the chicks tomorrow ...........

Hope your weekend was Blessed !

I like that bench and flower!

I use to work for someone who's
husband was a welder. He retired
and now sell's things he creates
at a Farmers market.

He put leaves on the metel part
of a light they had put up in
their dining room. It was so cool.

Peaches sound so good and the grill will be really nice to have.
