    Hi everyone, I have stumbled onto this web site when I was looking at ways to keep chickens cool. I have three darling pullets and two veggie box’s.

    My new years resolution is to produce as much as I can from my back yard. My family only consists DH & I so we should be able to produce enough. I must admit that I am a complete rooky when it comes to the garden and the chooks and I have so much to learn but so far both have survived and thrived!!!! But I still need all the help I can get.

    I have a strong dislike towards the supermarket and purchase everything I need at farmers markets, or direct from the suppliers.

    I can cook, preserve, stew and create wonderful cheeses so looking forward to seeing what this year can bring.

    :cheer:

    Welcome vanillapodsandgreenbeans! Love your name. I’m fairly new to all this too.

    We have quite a few chickens here & have been making sure they have lots of shade, fresh cool water & we put spray misters in their yards too. Apart from bringing them inside, there’s not a lot more you can do. Oh, except putting lots of green vegetation in their yards too.

    I’ve never tried making cheese, but want to make some this year so I look forward to you posting a bit more about that.
