Glorious salad days
Despite colder evenings and mornings, nature seems to be wanting to move forward to Spring weather. I would like to plant the above salad seedlings into the polytunnel but have to wait until after the next weekend when we will move the chicken tractor back in operation. For the moment anything that is vaguely green and edible has been devoured by the chickens roaming the garden so small lettuce seedlings, carefully nurtured are not going to be chicken food. ( A lot of fowl language has happened around here.....at the chickens ( pun intended !).
My DS 2 managed to do a bit of digging this afternoon on the clay bed which when the chickens have moved will get a lot of compost dumped on the area to make it easier to work with. So a lot of earthmoving is planned to prepare for the new season. It is simply too gorgeous out there today to be here so...I am off to the garden.
I am about to order my bokashi set from wigglywigglers and cannot wait to se what a difference that is going to make to our composting efforts. I am still aiming at not having the dustman call. ( No its not a dream, it should be possible to recycle, reduce and reuse or compost most of what comes in).
