Have you missed me?

I just found out that I broke my RSS feed in January, so readers in Bloglovin and Feedly have a bit of catching up to do!




Here's what you may have missed.  I think its all fixed no and I'll stop fiddling with it, so you should keep seeing my posts again :)

Make sure that you are following this RSS link: http://feeds.feedburner.com/EightAcres

  4. Oh I thought it was just me! I had to go physically looking for your posts, so I didn't miss any, thankfully. I don't know what RSS is, but I'm glad it's sorted anyway. I'm lurking here Liz, but sorry about the lack of comment from me. It's enough to turn on my laptop a couple nights a week, without having to find sensible words to put together; such is the busy-ness and then exhaustion of my life of late. Retirement is around the corner, and I'm dreaming of all the things I'll catch up on then.

Chicken tractor guest post

Sign up for my weekly email updates here , you will find out more about chickens, soap and our farmlife, straight to your inbox, never miss a post!  New soap website and shop opening soon.... Tanya from Lovely Greens invited me to write a guest post on chicken tractors for her blog.  I can't believe how many page views I get for chicken tractors, they seem to be a real area of interest and I hope that the information on my blog has helped people.  I find that when I use something everyday, I forget the details that other people may not be aware of, so in this post for Tanya, I tried to just write everything I could think of that I haven't covered in previous posts.  I tried to explain everything we do and why, so that people in other locations and situations can figure out how best to use chicken tractors with their own chickens. The dogs like to hang out behind the chicken tractors and eat chicken poo.  Dogs are gross! If you want to read more about chicken tractor

Getting started with beekeeping: how to harvest honey

While honey is not the only product from a beehive, its the one that most beekeepers are interested in and it usually takes a year or so to let the bees build up numbers and store enough honey before there is enough to harvest.  There are a few different ways to extract honey from frames.  We have a manual turn 2-frame certifugal extractor.  A lot of people with only a few hives will just crush and strain the comb.  This post is about how we've been extracting honey so far (four times now), and there are links at the end to other bloggers who use different methods so you can compare. Choose your frames Effectively the honey is emergency food stores for the bees, so you have to be very careful not to take too much from the hive.  You need to be aware of what is flowering and going to flower next and the climate.  Particularly in areas with cold winters, where the bees cannot forage for some time.  We are lucky to have something flowering most of the year and can take honey
