I’ve been saving all the egg shells from the eggs I eat since I’ve had the chickens. I had a bucket almost full of egg shells.
I needed to break up the shells some more so I put them in these empty feed bags which I was thinking of running over with my car. I tried stooping them and that seemed to do the job.
For the chickens
I put some of them in this dispenser for the chickens to eat to help make new eggs.
While I was taking a break in the chicken pen I noticed this momma hen had some new chicks peeping out of her nest box.
She’s two days early and still has several eggs to hatch out yet.
I cleaned out and filled up all the chicken feeders and the water supplies too.
This is my feed shed.
This is a grow screen that protects the new plants from the chickens which I planted about a week ago and is now pushing up lots of little green plants.
This is another pen I use to grow stuff for the chickens. I need to dig a section of this pen up to plant it.
I dug up the part I wanted and had some help.
Then I hauled two wheelbarrows of woodchips in and dumped them. I’ll let the chickens spread the mulch out and scratch this all up. Tonight just before dark I’ll plant some seed in here.
When I rolled the wheelbarrow of woodchips by here some bees buzzed me menacingly so I thought I better check it out and do something about them.
This turned out to be yellow jackets. I turned the hose on them a couple times and I think I got them, I hope.
I ate a few of these grapes that are starting to get ripe. That’s one big bunch there.
Just before dark I smoothed out the pen I was digging in as the chickens had it pretty nice already. I put some seed in and raked it a bit. I’ll keep the chickens out of here until things are growing good.
It was an exceptional evening so I spent it chair hopping and enjoying the yard until it got dark.
A Sony AX33 4K, a video camera that takes stills too. What am I doing with that? I take pictures from my Kayak a lot. I found I was missing interesting shots, because my pic was being processed in my camera, before it would let me take another pic. Since I like to take what I call action stills, I bought this camera to take videos, that I could make stills out of, but, as a bonus, this camera also came with buttons to just take stills and that's what I mostly do, unless something is real interesting or too far away for my still zooms. My digilat zoom setting for video goes to two hundred x, and sometimes I need that, but usually, I only use the 10x lens zoom. Because this camera is HD and 4K, the quality has to be real good and it has a lot of stabilizers on it which really helps out a lot for taking pics on the water.
The other thing it has that is a must is a view finder and I had to buy Sony's top of the line cam to get it. This is a must for taking pics on the water, as you must hold the camera as still as posible and putting that eye piece to the eye forms a tripod with your arms that helps a lot. The eye piece is also a must as it works way better than a LED screen to see what you are taking a picture of in the daylight as the LED screens wash out easily in sunlight.
I also have another video camera, a Canon VIXIA G30. I use them both to mostly take stills. The Sony takes higher resolution stills than the G30. That was a bit of a disappointment as I bought the G30 to replace an older camera I dunked in the river, but then had to buy the Sony to get higher still picture resolution that the G30 was lacking.
