This afternoon as I do everyday after work just about I visited with our chickens and collected some eggs. I often take this time to also give them some leftover scraps and we had some lettuce and asparagus leftovers. I noticed my husband had installed some hooks so I can very conveniently hang my egg basket now on the side of the chicken. He purchased two of these baskets for me so I would always have one available. For those that homestead you know how these little niceties make your every day life so much easier.
I have included a picture of how I hang the basket:
and now I have a hook to hook the lid of the coop up with so I can reach in and get the eggs:
Designing with function in mind is key to succesful and seamless homesteading although the two words in that same sentence is almost comical! 😉 Here is a link to see a picture of our coop if you have not seen it yet! I love the design my husband put together on this one! He used pallets and other recycled materials!
What are the little things that you notice that help around your homestead? I would love to hear them! As always thanks for stopping by our Lil’ Suburban Homestead!
