Ducks! We Have Ducks!



Hello All!  We've been very busy here at Hibiscus House, but I wanted to share the latest additions to our family.  We have ducks!  I need to tell you I know nothing about growing ducks!  This will be a learning experience for sure!

BBQ Sauce Boneless Pork Chops in the Pioneer Woman Instant Pot


I found six boneless pork chops in the fridge, I'd forgotten about.  Oh no, we can't waste perfectly good food. What in the world was I going to do with them?  I've been trying to use my Pioneer Woman Instant Pot lately so today was a day for it. I decided to make up a quick BBQ Sauce to use on them and cook in that way. Guess I'll do a little review on the pot today as well.

Our New Homestead Coop


We just added another little hobby chicken coop to our pen.  We have a variety of chickens and age groups here at Hibiscus House.  The Ole Folk Chickens are dwindling in numbers.  We love them and have had them for years.  They spend most of their days free ranging, eating, and resting.  The One year old pullets in the pen with the Red Barn Coop and this newer batch about two months old in this Homestead Coop.

Predators have had a field day recently.  We've said good bye to Pumpkin, and several others.  Gaston has become injured and is enjoying his life out in the soft grass in his days.  He has done his job well, but age and injury are taking a toll on him.

Cora Lee and Pat the Hammer, two of our oldest, are still laying but enjoying the free range life now as well.  You have to keep replenishing to keep a steady supply of chickens for the wonderful eggs.  Today"s Chicken Talk is about our new inexpensive coop from Tractor Supply.
