In the short video, you can see some frustration I'm having with sealing the walls in the basement. This area is in the process of being converted into a post-harvest production space and packaging area. However, not much work can be done while water is coming in from the walls. I have to keep the water out before I can turn the space into a highly productive area for Holt Growers. So far, the progress has been slow.

I used two different products on the wall. The blue was a Behr premium plus paint & primer for exterior use. It covered really well on the first coat for the bare concrete. The gray product was a color place ultra paint & primer for exterior use. Unfortunately, it did not cover well at all and left dark gray areas and other areas with almost no color whatsoever.
I was hoping to have this step in the process completed this week, but it looks like I'm going to need to get more coats put on at least make it look nice as well as keep the water out.

For the past several weeks, we have had water coming into the basement via the wall in the video. This area is going to be our post harvest and packaging area. This video shows how we repaired the holes with hydraulic cement. Later, once the cement is set up, we will seal and paint the wall and floor. Stay tuned for videos covering that coming soon.

Materials Needed:
nitrite gloves
work gloves
small bucket/tube (for mixing in)
cement trowel
water
hydraulic cement compound

Process:
1st: Thoroughly clean the area being repaired. Remove any loose debris. (not shown in video)
2nd: cutback/ enlarge holes for good adhesion (not shown in video)
3rd: mix cement in small batches
4th: tightly pack cement into holes and smooth with trowel
5th: once dry, brush off excess cement (not shown)
6th: seal with concrete sealer (not shown)

Blueberries are a great fruit to grow in the backyard. They bloom between early summer and early fall. We have 3 different varieties. Some were planted 6 years ago; others were 3 years ago. Others still were planted last year.
Blueberry bushes take 3-5 years to mature. So if your looking for a quick harvest, they may not be right for you. However, a healthy bush can live for decades and will generally produce berries every other year for life.

The 16 pullets are ready for a new home. They have outgrown the totes and are ready to move to a bigger home: under the coop. Stay until the end of the video to see a time-lapse of how I prepared this space for them.

I use baling twine as guidelines for my tomato plants to grow on. The twine is tied to the soaker hose on the ground and on a support in the roof of the greenhouse. Each tomato plants gets their own guideline. The plant is wrapped around the twine as it grows. This makes for easy harvest and trimming of the plant.

every week I try to upload a new video covering some aspect of the farm on a quarter acre of land in the middle of town. With a small flock of 24 hens living in the backyard as well as the greenhouse and garden beds, there's always something to showcase.
