Chickens - Hatching Chicks with an Incubator

Liz Crain of Leafhopper Farm describes how she hatches Chicks from her own Chicken's eggs using an Incubator.

##### USING AN INCUBATOR
- Incubutors replace the need for a Hen to sit on the eggs.  The eggs need consistent heat and humidity control.  They also need to be turned to keep an even heat distribution.  They don't appear to be making the incubator model we use anymore, but here are other [Brinsea Incubators](https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=brinsea+egg+incubator&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Abrinsea+egg+incubator&_encoding=UTF8&tag=jit40gha3-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=720b76292773f1f3b85874817cdcd47f&camp=1789&creative=9325) still being made.

Permaculture blog #4: Making compost in the city
As I was sweeping my porch yesterday I heard the lawnmower around my condo complex and it triggered a memory.  Several years ago when I was going strong with my garden on my balcony I was going full steam ahead with growing fruits, vegetables, and composting.

Photo taken with my iPhone

I discontinued my garden for a few years because of my focus on other priorities.  It was mostly due to the arrival of my youngest child and at the same time in the midst of my doctorate degree.  The one weekend trip my family and I took several years back that was the straw that broke the camel’s back was the long 4-day weekend of triple digit temperatures.  This weekend resulted in about 80-90% of the plants on my balcony roasting and dying in the pot.  With that, and little time to keep at it and start over, I made the decision to scrap the garden.  I mean… I had school and a new baby.  Note exactly events that pr

Permaculture Blog #4 Β½: Coffee grounds are awesome for the compost!
I was getting ready to prepare my morning coffee this morning and I was preparing my French press coffee maker as usual.  When I got to it I realized I had forgotten to clean it out from yesterday.  And, I realized I had forgotten to mention coffee grounds in my previous blog from yesterday.  COFFEE GROUNDS are very good for your compost.  In terms of composting it’s a good brown ingredient to layer into your compost.

Images taken by my iPhone

When I first started using coffee grounds for my compost several years ago I had asked the question, why used and not just ground coffee.  Well, first off you’ll be wasting good coffee beans that could be used for a nice pot of java.  Second, coffee grounds that are ground and unused are acidic.  When you brew your coffee the acid and caffeine are leache

Taking Care of Business – Methane Digesters
<html>
<p>In my previous issues of Taking Care of Business I discussed how human feces can be composted aerobically in <a href="https://steemit.com/composting/@stortebeker/taking-care-of-business-1-humanure-composting-with-a-bucket">dry composting toilets</a>, and also <a href="https://steemit.com/toilet/@stortebeker/taking-care-of-business-2-back-to-using-water">how flush-toilets can be made sustainable</a>. Today I want to look at another alternative, the Methane Digester (or digestor – according to my spell checker both are spelled incorrectly).&nbsp;</p>
<h2>Methane? The greenhouse gas exacerbating climate change?</h2>
<p>That's right. Letting organic matter decompose without the aid of oxygen produces methane, a flammable gas known for its distinct smell. We don't have to go too far to experience it, as this anaerobic decomposition may happen right in our bodies, where our intestines form an air-tight container to the decomposing organic matter. These farts that occasionally build up and escape in smel

Last night I had the opportunity to attend a presentation given by Matt Powers, author of _The Permaculture Student_.  Matt's energy and excitement for permaculture was contagious and he re-inspired me to delve deeper and do more. 

Here are my notes from his presentation:

## Some Background on Matt
Matt was a bass player in New York City when his wife got cancer.  The doctors cut it out and she got cancer a few more times.  They stopped and reevaluated their lives and decided to move to the west coast.  They started to eat cleaner and grow their own food.  Matt found permaculture as a way to get clean food and fell in love with it.  His wife has been cancer free for six years.  Matt is now the author of _The Permaculture Student_ a text book geared toward grade sch

GOOD NEWS : We can feed the entire planet without destroying it!
*Hi steemians, I've prepared this article to share you why permaculture can support the entire population of the globe. As usual, your opinions are welcomed :)*

# Food demand is growing fast.
****
In the last few decades, scientists, chemists and agriculturists managed to improve massively the production of food. In the past 40 years, global cereal yield has doubled. However, the techniques of production we developed destroy ecosystems and put populations health at risk. And as we already know, Earth's population is growing fast. It is growing so fast that global food demand is expected to double by the next 50 years.

 **We're facing the challenge to maximise yields without compromising the environemental preservation and the human health.**

# Modern agriculture is not the solution

A lot of people believe the only way to respond to this increasing food demand

Look What I Found
## The Tale of a Bad Gardener

It doesn't rain in Southern California. Well, at least it doesn't in the Summer. Hardly ever.

My point is, that plants need to be watered. Or they die.

This summer, I was a very, very bad gardener.  My intentions were to install a good drip system all around.

And I didn't. Maybe because I have tried several different methods and none worked. I am bit hesitant.

But, I hate hand watering. A lot!!

So, my garden is looking sad. But apparently, is also very forgiving. Very few things have died. Thank you sweet plants for hanging in there with me until I get my garden mojo back. And thanks to my husband who has kept the fruit trees alive!

Today, I got some garden energy and cleaned up a bunch of sunflowers who had bloomed, fed the birds and died. That is okay, they are supposed to.

My Meyer Lemon got some mulch and I realized that the darn ants have been keeping lots of scale on it and it has suffered. Tomorrow, I have to hose and scrub them to help out that poor thing.

But th

![0920171020a_HDR~2.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmYSxV1Sq33qHM5AfgP8nyHDBvExdhMJHcb2kKcX3bbZcf/0920171020a_HDR~2.jpg) This is the first year I have gotten a significant quantity of fruit from this 5 year old tree.  Since it is tropical, it prefers heavy watering, and appreciates a good shower on its leaves every so often.

![0920171022_HDR~2.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmTELtjrndKuK3eoi3PmatTHWdwwMPTY9aGGWKedUT7cuF/0920171022_HDR~2.jpg)  The hard little seeds kind of get in the way of eating out of hand, but they are not bitter or harmful, so my next experiment is putting them through the juicer.

May your day be fruitful!

Love,Cat
