New Additions to the Geek Homestead

When we lived near San Diego we ended up with 6 chickens. The first one escaped from a neighbor and ended up staying with us since that neighbor decided to stop keeping chickens. Later we bought two more chickens, then a friend gave us three.

Adding chickens to the homestead helps in many ways outside of eggs.

  • They eat garden and household scraps which helps make compost
  • Their bedding and manure are the only reason I had a working compost heap before
  • They help teach our children responsibility and caring for something other than themselves


Homemade Chocolate Magic Shell

Josh has always loved magic shell on his ice cream and the kids have inherited that love! I like it too but not as much as they do. If you’re a fan of magic shell, you probably know about the kind you can buy at the store.
