We are trying something new on the farm this year. Sheet mulch. I saved a bunch of boxes from work, and although we don’t read the paper, a co-worker saved some for us. The area by the hoop house will be for squash, gourds and such. What you don’t see is the deep pile of half rotten hay from a wet round bale we had. Once the weather is better the zucchini, acorn squash, pumpkin, hubbard and other winter squash will go in.
The beans and potatoes (coming in another post) went in today as well. Summer is coming!!!
Baby chicks went into the deck brooder today as well. Ah peace and quiet in the house again.
