Almost spring! (Almost)

well….technically, it is spring…but still a little too winter-ey for my liking….

so the fodder experiment is coming along! I’m finding in this temperature it took about 11 days to grow a tray of fodder, turning 2 lbs of barley grain into 6.5 lbs of lovely barley fodder (sprouted grain)…tomorrow we shall see how the poultry and rabbits like it! Some pictures.. The setup… A gravity feed…
