Today was a full day in the garden. I started the day screening a half pound of worms for a customer using my compost screen. I was able to get about five pounds of worm castings from my worm box which I placed around my fruit trees.
I mowed the lawn and made several layers of leaves and grass clippings in my first compost bin. I will have the bin filled by next weekend and then I will turn it to the second bin.
The family took a trip to the nursery to buy flowers to replace the ones the dog tore out trying to get the gophers last fall. Spent a lot of money and still only made a dent in what I need to replace. The yard is looking much better though and I didn’t think I would ever say this but I am starting to like the damn dog. Guess I will keep it.
The chickens and I grazed the garden today. They started to eat my radishes through the fence so I joined them for a dozen or so. They are very sweet and not hot when young.
I built my pole bean teepee made of bamboo zip tyed together and I ran string around the canes for the beans to grow up on. I do this every year and it is a fun project. I placed the teepee by the patio and it will provide privacy when the beans grow up the teepee.
