Awhile back my husband saw this thing on growing fodder to feed your farm animals. He didn't listen to the directions all that closely, gave it a try and ended up with a stinky, fermented mess. Bless his heart.
Now because I
am swamped beyond belief have nothing else to do I am attempting to grow fodder for Daisy and the chickens. After way too much time on the computer researching how to do this without spending money (I'm not buying a hydroponic system) I'm giving it a go. So far, I am not pleased (but really, am I ever?).
I begin by weighing the barley to exactly 2.5 pounds. (I'm going to drop this to 2 pounds).
Last night was a Bamboo Panda night. When I drove Nick in to pick up his car from having the tires changed I picked up take-out for my three men (the little ones won't eat Chinese).
