Won’t Jackson be surprised when he gets home and there’s a goat. I’ve had a couple before but never had much luck as they escape. This guy was free so I won’t have anything invested if he leaves. We have named him George. He does wonder but cones back when you call his name.
It has been surprisingly wet this spring. These have popped up in-between my beds. I’m a fungi … haha to funny. All joking aside I would love to learn more about mushrooms and fungus. Some of it taste awesome im sure but on the other hand the not tasty stuff will kill me so either way I am a little scared to even try it.
Life has been very busy. With the wedding coming up in a few weeks and trying to get everything ready for the ground I’ve been busy. I actually harvested some kale tonight. For whatever reason the beds are overly weedy this year. I bet I’ve pulled 3 wheel barrows worth of weeds from the 3 main beds. I am getting very excited about the lettuce. I’ve got a couple kinds and yum yum it will be tasty.
I love raised beds and I am pretty sure I may never garden in the ground again. I like the neatness of the whole thing. I also think weeding is so much better. I did a lot of research and started small. Bit by bit I try to add a little every year. This year I am adding a 10′ by 30′ section. It will be enough for 3 more beds and a center bed. Hard to describe but you will see what I am talking about when its done.
Worked on my truck yesterday and had to take Jackson to the airport today so I didn’t get much done around here this weekend. I did however get the low tunnel up and get kale planted. I also planted a few marigolds – its a little cold for them but they may make it. I did make one change this year over last year. I use PVC pipe and I usually stick it in the ground. This year I installed pipe brackets on the side of the bed. It seems to have a lot more stability than years past. I zip tie all the pipe together for easy disassembly. One good thing – I didn’t have to use any plastic. This is made from the roof of the greenhouse project. I do plan on putting one over the carrot bed so I can go ahead and get them planted.
