Scarecrow's Garden: Chook Sprouts

From: A Guide to Organic Living in Australia by Michael J Roads. I first read that book in the eighties and ever since have sprouted wheat for my chooks in the summer months. This is when the heat sets in and the grass goes brown. With very little green feed around the chooks really need the healthy boost that these sprouts can provide.This little book described a method by which you soaked grains in a cut down 44 gallon drum covered with corrugated iron.

What good was making a book going to do? It’s not like a book can stop a rainbow…Maybe the pig wanted me to bring this to the attention of the world? Maybe I just needed to finance a quest to go kill the vile beast? Either way, I couldn’t do anything without real supplies. A block of book guts turned up in my craft cupboard. Hannah Lamb: patina.

New Challenge for July. Dear Bloggers and Friends, well, it looked a bit like the hot temperatures (and then maybe the terrible floodings) during the first half of June kept a lot of you away from their workdesks, since we only got few entries for our monthly challenge then (we already wondered if we chose a theme that wasn't up to your taste at all). But then the second half of June has shown us that you are all still with us - THANK YOU all so much for the marvelous projects you have once more entered to our June challenge! You can guess that it will be hard to select the TOP 3 (as usual;) - which will be anounced within a week.

So this is what you need: one sheet of paper for the pagesbinder's board for the coversdecorative paper for the coverpaste or PVAFold the paper in half, the long way.
