It’s A Chicken Yurt & The Ole’ Saturday Homesteading Trading Post Ed. No. 28

Our Featured Blog This Week – Mom Photographer

I am very excited to feature this week my virtual friend Ewa’s blog “Mom Photographer’s Bread Machine Challah which looks absolutely amazing!  First of all Ewa is an amazing photographer, she also is a fabulous cook you can tell from all of the beautiful food she creates!

Ewa’s Challah pictures just make your mouth water but that’s not all you will find at her blog.  Here are some links to some of her mouth watering recipes:

Homemade Marzipan

The Joy of Eating Fresh Pastry

Mixed Fruit and Spinach Smoothie

If nothing else you need to check out her blog to see her beautiful photography.  I will be making a Featured on Lil’ Suburban Homestead’s “The Ole’ Saturday Homesteading Trading Post” soon!

My Mom was supposed to draw names out of a hat but she wasn’t at my house so to be equitable I had my son call out a number from #1 through #15…..the hard part for me is all of you who are faithful to link up every week are all of my favorite blogs just about so it’s too difficult but I am hoping that I will have an opportunity to feature each and every one of you here.   I can’t wait to feature another blog next week!

Also my husband has been building our new “Chicken Yurt” and we thought we would share some of the pictures from this project.  With lumber being so expensive right now we thought we would use some more repurposed materials to keep expenses down so he had a huge amount of canvas material that is waterproof so we decided to wire the new coop in and then cover with the canvas although he sometimes changed how he layered this material due to waterproofing.  We also used a King Sized Canopy Bed Frame that was a dumpster dive find to serve as the aviary support and frame.  I do not know yet our total cost on this project but I will post when we finally share our finished product.  I hope that we have inspired those of you who want to keep chickens in a suburban homestead environment.  Please ask if you have any questions I have to say my husband The Viking in my life is quite handy however this could have been done without some of the specialty touches such as the little walkway ramp etc… Also it was soooo HOT today so we jumped in the pool and cooked dinner on the grill tonight.  I know he will be happy when this project is done.

Wow and its time for another edition No. 28 actually of “The Ole’ Saturday Homesteading Trading Post” cannot believe another week has passed by and I haven’t posted since last week.  Time sure does fly when you are busy on the homestead.  So you saw our chicken yurt we are working on….what are you working on at your place?  I sure would love to hear it…..and maybe next week it will be your blog that gets featured and maybe by next week I will have my feature badge/button ready 😉

  3. thank you, Karen!!! I am flattered 🙂 I have nothing to link up this week; this week was all about trips to the park, reading my book and crocheting… didn’t feel like blogging, although have some great recipes to share 🙂
    Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

    great post, thank you! Yes, my poor husband, daughter & son were sweltering all afternoon because we’re putting in a new pasture. So they were drilling holes and putting corner posts in and there are lots of rocks, of course, and lots of clay soil to try to get through. I was dealing with filling out a FAFSA/online Financial Aid form for my kids’ colleges. The deadline was tonight! So I had my own frustrating time in the house, mixing up passwords and user names and not being able to find this, that and the other thing. I was pretty happy to join them outside eventually! And the day all ended with a jump in the pool and then some late night sandwiches when we’d finished chips, salsa and guacamole(I couldn’t bear to turn the stove on!)
    Happy Summer!
