Also on the list: canning more tomatoes (lots more... currently just hanging out on my counter while I dig potatoes), canning and freezing zucchini (ditto), and building a chicken tractor or two for my quickly growing broiler chicks.
And speaking of broiler chicks, they have caused me some anxiety. First of all, due to higher than expected demand, I ordered 50 more on a whim. They come next week. And now I'm second guessing that decision. Second, I've most four chicks in the last five days. That's more dead chickens than I have ever dealt with in my entire career of chicken raising combined (not counting the ones intentionally killed). Nothing seems to be visibly wrong with them, they just die. I know this is normal, but it's never happened to me before... out of the five batches of chicks I have raised before this one (counting the batch of broilers I raised as a 4-H project in high school) I have lost TWO chicks to random sudden chick death. And I lost one older chick to a hawk, so out of the 55 previous chicks I have owned only three have died from any cause. Now four dead chicks out of 50. I know it's normal, but I don't like it and it's making me worry that there is something wrong with them.
