Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Meet Captain...

83 degrees - 2:05 pm - sunny and hot...

As it turns out all twelve of our chickens were not pullets.  We have a rooster in the coop.  Captain is one of the four Plymouth Rocks. He's a handsome guy and can stay as long as he minds his manners.  Although we had no intention of getting a rooster, his loud crow adds pleasant farmyard sounds in the mornings (actually he crows all day long).  Let's hope he stays nice so he wont have to be turned into chicken nuggets.
