Ask The Coop Keeper

I can't imagine you not knowing something about me.
You already know too much.

But, I just thought that just maybe there was a burning question that you'd love to have answered.

Ask away.
I will answer.

You can ask in the comments, or send me an email.
All questions will be answered here tomorrow.

Ok, please ask me somethin' - I'll be feelin' a fool if you don't!

(6:15pm CST amendment - please don't stop asking questions cause you feel like I already have nearly 50 - I'm LOVING this!  You are asking great questions and I can't wait to answer them!  Thank you!)

  2. Hi Jayme,
    How long have you lived in that GORGEOUS house, and do you do all your yard work/gardening yourself or do you have help? (ie., a landscaping service)

  3. Is that photo taken in front of your house, and if so, did you put all those rocks there? OR, are you standing in front of someone else's house just to make it appear that you put those rocks there.. LOL

  4. Can I get a start of your shasta daiseys and brown eyed susans? They're beautiful!

    Just kidding... I know you'd share if I lived close by, but I don't.. so I'll just have by my own.

    And really... I'm content not to know EVERYTHING!

  11. Did you (or Glenco) do all of the painting of your trim work on the house? I've studied it and studied it trying to figure out how I could do something cool like that on the outside of our house.

    Take care, Jayme dear.

  15. Hi! I'm pretty new to your blog, but already just love it!
    I'm curious about the history of your home. I see where you said it was built in 1869. Do you know any of it's history? Any neat stories about the previous owners, etc.?

  21. How do you keep your chickens out of your gardens during the day? How did you learn how to sew things like the awning you made for your camper?

    ReplyDelete

    What has been your favorite vacation?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Well! I was gonna ask you a question but now that I see you've already got a gazillion questions to answer.... I'm not going to make the pile any bigger.

    ReplyDelete
  24. What's in your attic and what does it look like? can you take a picture out of the window we see in the picture?

    ReplyDelete
  25. When is your first book coming out? Seriously, you write so wonderfully you should really consider it.
    On a more mundane note:
    How many laying chickens do you have?
    On average, how many eggs do you get a day?

    Please keep blogging, you really have a gift for it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Can I come and stay with you for a week? Will work for my keep.Just kidding.(not really !)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have a question:

    Will you come visit me? My gardens are weeping for you. I promise not to let my horse bite you, my goats eat you, my farm cats climb up you, or my roof cave in on you. Oh never mind - you better not come visit me... it's a dangerous place here.

    So, then... let me ask another question.

    How are you doing, Jayme? Are you doing okay? Really, I've been worried.

  28. How/when did you decide to start raising the "funny looking" chickens rather than just normal egg chickens? I love them, their quirky looks, and your posts about them! Oh, and your duck....she quacks me up!! Love your blog, it's great!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh, how fun. First let me say that you look just adorable in the photo and your home and garden are gorgeous. I read about your garden tour and would have loved to have been in attendance. I am always amazed by the amount of things you accomplish in a day. Are you just naturally energetic or do you have some secrets that you could pass along?

    ReplyDelete
  30. First of all I LOVE your house! Every time I see a picture of it I just want to move right in. Your house and garden are just so beautiful!
    The question I have is: If you had the choice to do one thing over in your life, what would it be?
    Have a wonderful day,
    Anke

    ReplyDelete
  44. Do a video with you and Glenco kissing. HA! Now, that would be a hoot.

    Only you girl could look so elegant at your mailbox in front of your home. Only you girl could get 45 plus comments in a matter of a day.
    Only you girl could be so loved by all of us in so many ways.

    You sure do bring us all so much joy.

    Yes, I wish I could detour up to your neck of the woods next weekend on our little visit, but don't think we will have the time. I promise it will happen though soon enough.

    xoxo

  45. Jayme, I see you have lots of questions but I am going to ask one. Do you love living out this way and do you often go sighting see in our lovely town here just for the heck of it and act like you are a tourist.

    I do enjoy reading your blog and one of these days would love to meet up with you in town for a cup of coffee or something especially since we are practically neighbors. Have to say I passed your house the other day and it is looking so pretty my dear.

    Hugs,

    Anne

  58. Hi! I nearly peed my pants when you commented on my blog (which I clearly give no attention)! I have to know, don't your chickens poo in your house when you let them inside? Also, I keep wondering why my chickens are afraid of me. I have tried to pick them up and love on them (my arms look like a person who cuts themselves)but they really just like each other. When I come in the coop they freak out. What have I done wrong? Do I need to raise them as chicks to get them to call me mama?

    ReplyDelete
  59. This is so fun, loved reading all the questions...

    I'd like to know, what is the farthest (from home) place you've ever been to? And have you ever been to the Pacific Northwest?
