I know, the dust is stupid! just stupid,,, I cant keep up with it,
If you do get herbs and can only do a few, my top ones are , horseradish, rosemary, thyme and oregano, they are all anti viral---OH and lots of garlic
I have garlic, need to dig it up, has been over taken by black eyed Susan’s and weeds. I had a big beautiful rosemary bush, but the -6F got it this past winter.


So, for the time you get the to the time you butcher them is???? how long
Industrial standards are 5-6 weeks. My standard is 8-10 weeks, these are at 13 weeks, life happens. I also ferment their feed with buttermilk as a starter. More work, but healthier bird and better meat.

If you decide to raise some, I recommend getting 6-10 so you don’t get overwhelmed. I order 50 at a time, but I’m an idiot. :)

Wow! What a beautiful garden and all those herbs! I want a herd garden, been here 7 years, ain’t done it yet. But at least the garden produces.

I get you on the sand! Ours is called sugar sand. White, fine, devoid of humus and nutrients, pure sand. I’ve been cheated! Where is my ocean? A lake? Ok, what about a pond? Puddle? Nothing? Maybe a bucket of water…… LOL

And the DUST! Can’t keep anything clean, always in a state of dusty or dustier.
You could make a beautiful pond with the white sand as a beach!
