The year started out very good. We had over 500 tomatoes plants. All Heirloom plants from seed we saved last year. And we sold and gave away 400 plants, saving 100 plants for ourselves. But the weather has not been good. And my plants have not given me much fruit. Nothing like last year. So we are trying to save seeds for next year. And I ordered a few hundred seeds from a grower in Italy. So I hope we will have a good number of plants next summer...and hope for better weather One man plants, another waters but God gives the increase!
Why not start with an IBC and cut a hole for the door? You could build closed laying boxes into it, and something for the chickens to roost on. Put some straw or saw dust on the floor. You could add vents to the side for air. If it sat inside a chicken run that you can walk into, the chickens could be safe, dry and happy. I have an extra IBC. Maybe this could be my chicken house? I bet I could even plant the outside of it with mud and grass for extra insulation and good looks.
