Nothing like a deadline to kick me into gear! I’ll be heading back to help Victoria some more with baby Matthew, so I had to get stuff done around here.
I did manage to do a fair amount, though, as usual… never as much as I thought I could do! My yard is raked again (and sticks hauled away) and most of it is mowed (and added to my hugelkultur bed) and some of it was watered! A smidge of laundry was done. Potato rows were made and planted, along with some potatoes in a straw bale just to see how it works. I also planted carrots and peas/flowers in their own bales as well. You can see how a bit of top soil is spread on top to create the seedbed. My drip hose was wired down into place to make sure it stayed in its place.
This is oat straw… and I have a pretty good volunteer stand on this one bale!
I also checked on my bees and cleaned my kitchen. My eyes are slamming shut, so I hope this makes sense!
Hey, it’s a new month, so let’s do a Q&A… C’mon, ask me a question and I’ll try to answer it!
