Garden and Quail Update

Things have progressed quickly over this past month.  I’ve got seven new quail babies, the 4-week-olds have been moved into their outdoor enclosure, and we’ve planted our seedlings in the garden.  I’m very satisfied with what we’ve accomplished.

GARDEN

We grew all of these plants from seeds.  MUCH cheaper than buying a seedling at the store.  And you can get that wonderful smug feeling that you did it from start to finish =D

QUAILS

We moved them outside when they were 3 weeks old.  They’re doing really well and are getting bigger every day!

The hutch - we put them all in the upper section.

  1. Ran across your blog doing a search on raising quail — I really like what you’re doing! I cannot wait to hear when you start getting eggs! I, too, am 26 in the suburbs doing my best to live sustainably. I cheated and bought seedlings this year — you’ve inspired me to grow from seeds next season, thank you!

    • Oh, I’ll be shouting from the rooftops once we finally get eggs! 😉

      Try from seeds! My fiance and I like to sit in the garden with smug smiles as we talk about how little each plant cost us. Really though, one $1.50 seed packet goes a long way.
