Garden update 7/12/16: production is booming 

garden

Walked into the garden this evening, it’s been a while since I’ve paid much attention to it. My hose timer watering them every morning keeps my work load low! Holy heirloom tomatoes!! I’m yielding baby! 

Go ahead an try to compare home grown to store bought. 

Pictured about is one clustered bed garden, I ran out of cinder blocks but planning to get another pallet next spring. It’s going to get immensely better, other worldly.

More borage flowers than I’ve ever seen, so many bees! Plant some if you never have.

Raspberries producing steady, might be peaking soon.

Raspberries by the cup full each day! Plants growing enormous, going to split them and split them they grow so well here! I want blackberries though, there’s always tomorrow.

Letttus sprouting!


My heirloom pumpkins! I also am battling the rabbits I hope to win, may begin trapping them and relocating them elsewhere. They aren’t that bad though with the dogs around.

Please enjoy

Remember 

I love you.

Video: Red Wiggler Worms working in a Compost Pile

chicken coop, Compost Pile, garden, Videos

Hey ever since I started “Lenny’s Worm Farm” ive always been interested in the ways worms play a vital role in gardening. When I started this compost pile a year ago I knew it needed red wigglers, a breed of worm known for its ability to eat and munch on all the good scraps and produce worm castings. I bought 200 and released them hoping for a good turnout. and now I can say I think its happening there are tons of worms in my pile. Oh they just love me ❤

please enjoy this brief video:

Thanks

It’s finally time, I brought my plants out from the indoor closet set up I crafted together. and let them into the environment. I wish I had eased them into it because I fear the cold nights my stress them out a little bit. I also wish I had invested in some topsoil + cow manure to fertilize before planting. Anyways it is what it is you live you learn.

Keep it real all.

Down with the old coop in with the new coop

Hey all I got some time to finally complete the chickens new residence! They are living good in this quant lil toasty shack. Waters clean and the food plentiful. Got to smash up the old eyesore of a “coop” where they used to live. 

All that rich fertile chicken scat made its way to the compost pile before demolitionthe birds were setting into there new breezy lower level. Seem to be liking it, I already got one eggs out of the new nesting box location.
That rich fertile chicken poo will provide bountiful yields this year. People say that chicken poop can burn your plants however I’m not sure that’s the case, others online report the opposite.

Lots of people say aging the manure is best choice for good results. I guess just try try and try again. You’ll figure out what works out back there yonder.

Keep on trucking

Cleaning up a winters mess!

Spring 2016

Been out here working and cleaning up the yard. I let it get really bad this winter and finally found some good weather to cleanup! I’d say I have a truckload of junk to goto the dump!    
    
Birds are happy and Laying!

 Plenty of cleanup to still do, I also have to repair the fense it seems to have shifted from original position. Nothing a few reinforced beams won’t cure.

   
Everything’s beginning to pop up! I can’t wait to get the garden going! Day Lilly’s and hostas and a few other things are starting to show!

 

Get out and get dirty

Thanks all
