potpourri of info

This week I will be working in the garden. March is our calmest, comfortable month. Swing season will begin next month, then we come into summer.

Now is the time we plant all our cool weather foods, like lettuce, onion and radishes. Our beds need to be tilled under and mulched. Pop bottles replaced in mole tunnels to keep the mice from eating the roots of our plants. {when the wind blows over the top of the empty bottles it makes a noise that the moles loathe, and they stay clear of the area. Leaving no access for the mice}

My strawberries have been greening up. Now that I know, I will be able to keep my hens away from the plants. This year I plan to have strawberries.

I was unable to get to the wattle fence. I have talked it over with my husband and we will be turning our willows into a living fence. Now to see if that will work. I still plan on the wattle fence, but not sure when that will happen.

We are also unable to make it to the Log home seminar. I will need to take a rain check on lunch for those of you that expressed interest.

Today I need to finish compacting my boys rooms and hopefully clean out the chicken coop.

We really need to get moving on some outdoor projects! Can't believe it is March already!

I didn't realise that your growing season was so long down there-I figured it was closer to the climate in Illinois.

Our garden has 3ft of snow on it so I can't even think about planting...
