Hobbies
« on: Thu Oct 10, 2019 - 15:00:50 »
Hello everyone I was wondering if you all would be interested in talking about your hobbies and hopefully some would have the same one I have.

I enjoy raising birds. I have turkeys, ducks, geese, guineas, and bantams chickens. The bantam breeds are Black Tailed White Japanese , Milli Fleur d'Uccle, Variety of silkies, Self blue d'Uccle and one lonely golden sebright. Due to predators they have to stay in their pens but when I am off work I let the ducks, geese, and turkeys out to free range and play in the kiddy pool.

I also raise rabbits for fun cause I realize there is no money to be made in my hobbies but it is fun to raise the birds and rabbits an interact with them.

I realize I may be the only with these hobbies but thought I would throw this out here to see what happens. Anyone want to talk chickens or hobbies?

I bet that's fun/relaxing/sweet to watch. The geese from the pond across the street are getting active and flying over my yard. Love the sound of their honking as they fly over.

My daughters used to raise Holland Lops for both show and to sell.  They used to love getting a basket and filling it with baby bunnies. They did silly things like make eyeglasses for them with pipe cleaners. They named every bunny from every litter. Their favorite bunny was one they named Katy Jr. cause she looked just like her mom. She was born with a splay leg deformity and didn't live a very long life, but my girls loved her to pieces.


As for my hobbies/pastimes/activities-

Anything to do with interior design and art. I've combined these hobbies with a little business adventure that's going well right now. Might as well make money doing what you like.
Gardening, sewing, crocheting, collecting colored glass, gems, crystals, playing the piano, twirling regular or fire batons in the back yard when my leg tendons aren't hurting...

A hobby/craft I want to try is working with leather. A couple of years ago, my daughter gave me a very nice leather tooling kit that I have yet to tackle. Maybe this winter.

How do you feel about going in so early? My maternal grandfather loved having a really early shift - but most people don't.

I’m still working also. Starting to think about retirement. Getting ducks in a row. Probably be working until 70 or when they boot me out the door. I will try to work at something as long as I’m healthy. I’m praying for some piddly job we both could do together.

I am just the opposite I to am trying to get prepared for retirement but I am thinking about doing early retirement in case my health don't hold out for the regular retirement time. I want to still have time to enjoy it but still be active with hobbies and maybe part time work.

Yes I love to set out with he ducks and geese as they free range and play in the pool. it is very fun to watch them splash around. I wish I had a pond so they can play on. There is a creek in the front across the road but I don't like them to go there because they run to far up and down away from the house I am afraid something might get them so the are confined to the yard.

The turkeys just run around looking for things to munch on. I was hoping that Tom would strut more but I guess it is past strutting season for him he does not even gobble much now. This is the first I have raised turkeys so hoping that he will strut again this spring and gobble his little heart out cause I love the sounds of the birds.

The guineas do not sound off much either but I only have 4 and not sure what they are whether I have a male and three hens (hopefully) or all one sex or what. They are hard to tell apart so waiting for the spring to see if I can figure it out. I keep them penned up so I can get them to reproduce and when I get enough I plan to let most free range while keeping some penned up for breeders.

I will not let the chickens out for fear of not being able to get them penned back up and something getting them. Right now I am collecting bantams but next spring looking to get standard breed to have the bigger eggs for eating. Will not eat the bantam eggs cause want to hatch and sell. That makes me have to build more breeding pens but I don't mind it is my hobby.

Well that's enough about my birds sorry I love to talk about them.

I tried the gardening thing but I am no good at that. I tried to raise tomatoes squash peppers and strawberries in planters but sill had no luck. Hopefully the strawberries will do better next spring. I also have planted blueberries two bushes and a grape vine and thorn-less blackberries so hope they all do good.

Oh yea I forgot about my fig tree and Kiwi bush the wife planted so hoping they do good as well. We are wanting to add fruit trees and nut trees but have not yet.

I even tried small engine repair as a hobby/business but that did not work out might be better once I retire but not enough time while I am employed.

Anyway enough about me wanting to hear more about everyone else.

My grandfather had 2 figs trees and in the fall he would start to weight them down, on one side until they actually almost touched the ground and then put a tarp on them to protect them from overly cold weather and sow. In the spring he did the reverse.

He had the green thumb, as dd my grandmother... I seem to kill things, except cactuses.

I AM fully retired, and I literally have no time for a hobby, other then the time I spend on GC. (I have no idea how I got all the things done that need done in a day, when I was working those 14 hour days. LOL)

TC... When you retire and if you get bored I will open a Sammich shop and you can manage it for me  ::tippinghat::

I like photography, and I like building things.   I'm presently playing with low-voltage solar things.    My son sent me a Raspberry Pi, and I'm messing with that, trying to make a "smart" security system using old cell phones.

Just about done with the shed, so a walkway and lower patio are on the list for spring.

With the rabbits, do you ever find one that's more aggressive than usual?    I once had a rabbit that with certain people, would turn his ears backwards and grunt.   That apparently was a "back off" signal, as he would sometimes try to bite the disliked one, if they didn't go away.

Would love to raise chickens and ducks, but in the city there are laws against it. When my wife was growing up in Ottawa, her parents raised chickens in their basement.   ::lookaround::

Had a rabbit, he was an ornery animal, decided the best place to pee was in the corner of our kitchen, got bit a few times trying to physically discipline him.  He went to live on the farm, no really.  ::smile::

My hobby is RC model aircraft, like building from scratch more than flying, but do both.  Every Sunday after church about a dozen of us converge on a friend's acreage and play with our toys.  Would have loved to be a military pilot, but I have physical issues that would prevent that,  Lower back issues primarily, but also I am far too tall to fit in a cockpit, not to mention I get sick on a commercial flight.  Best for me to keep my feet on the ground when I fly.

Here is one of my planes, Adrian's acreage, and a few of the guys can be seen on the edge of our runway, I am the tall one.

Ok I know it's to late this year but can someone tell me how to raise tomatoes in a five gallon buck and get lots of friut

I learned something this year that tripled my tomatoes in my green house. It seems that tomato blossoms have the male and female parts in each flower, as opposed to one flower being male and another female as is the case with so many plants. The bees go from male to the female carrying pollen and pollinates the female flowers. Tomatoes are different. The male part of the flower in inside or nearest the stem, and the female part of on the other end. This in why their blossoms point down and not up like apples and such.

 When the bee sees the yellow, he lands on the flower which shakes it, and pollen falls from the male part above onto the female part below. The bee doesn't actually get any pollen from the flower and after awhile he finds other flowers to mess with. In a garden, there are lots of insects, wind, even rain to shake the flower and drop the pollen, but if you have the plant in a green house, or deck or enclosed structure of some kind, there may be nothing there to shake the flower.

Last year I had 4 plants in my green house which I zip tied to fencing that was 7 foot tall. You almost couldn't get in this 14 by 20 foot house they were so big. But I didn't get enough tomatoes to even can.

This was because there wasn't enough action in there to shake the flowers.

On advice from a friend, I bought a cheap cordless electric tooth brush, and used it to shake each flower every couple of days.

I know it sounds goofy, but you can see the fine pollen dust fall when to touch the flower with the vibrating head, and I have clusters of 4 and 5 big boy tomatoes like I have never seen. If you try this once, you will always do this for your bucket plants.

My friend texted me a u tube video which explained this. You could probably google it. I had my 6 year old grandson shake the flowers for me early this summer when I was gone for several weeks, as a chore "for money"  ::smile:: ::smile::

It's one of the coolest things I have ever saw. Every flower becomes a tomato.

I was having trouble raising tomatoes. A horticulturist told meto use Triple Super Phosphate. I did, and the five plants of cherry tomatoes made so many tomatoes, I was giving away grocery sacks full to people at work! Craziest thing I ever saw, especially for a non-green thumb. If I slapped them around some, I woulda been lousy with ‘maters!

Yogi, I'd like to recommend two books. You may be able to find these at your library or through an interlibrary loan. Yes, you can find all this info online, but these books are just wonderful, IMO.

First book-

The Have More Plan.
My dad has owned this book for years and I covet it like crazy. That's all I want for my inheritance someday.  rofl  It was originally published in the 40s - about a couple who bought a tiny acreage and homestead the old-fashioned way. The book still has practical advice, but some of it is pretty dated. Just a fun, interesting book I bet you'd love. Read the reviews on Amazon - they'll make you smile.

https://www.amazon.com/Have-More-Plan-Ed-Robinson/dp/0882660241


Second book -

Build It Better Yourself.
I used to own this book, but I loaned it to a friend whose husband wanted it for instructions on how to build bee-keeping equipment. They moved and never returned my book! The book contains instructions on how to build Adirondack chairs that I always wanted to try. When my girls raised rabbits, we used the rabbit hutch plans for instruction. The book contains instructions/plans/diagrams on how to build nearly anything you want/need for homesteading.

https://www.amazon.com/Yourself-Organic-Gardening-Magazine-Editors/dp/0878571337


Yes, you can find all these hints, ideas, and instructions online, but these two older books are just so helpful and cool to look at.

My list:

Euell Gibbons' Handbook of Edible Wild Plants

I have that one! It's been a long time since I've looked at it, though. Need to dust it off.

Quote
The Boy Scout Handbook

I have my Girl Scout Handbook and keep it on a side table in the living room during summer months. The general instruction section is neat, but what I love the most is seeing where my parents signed off on each accomplishment I made on merit badge requirements. Love it. My mom or dad initialed and dated everything I did in that book. So special.

I would love to adopt some former battery hens and give them a good life, but many places here have laws against keeping farm type animals and we have never really had a big enough garden. I would also love to keep ducks, I love ducks, and would love a small lake to keep them on.
 
I love dogs and have my 5th rescue dog now, so take her out for walks every day. I am also a prolific reader. I also like forums, and discussing many things with many people.
