Dont Judge a Man by His Pre Spring Gardens

There is already so much to do.  The gardens are a mess from fall.  Looking back I feel like I should have done a little more back in the fall to keep ahead of the game.  The mulch has settled over the winter and ill need to get more.  Ill start buying a few bags at a time assuming I can remember.  I usually think about it when I am back here on the farm.

The shop extension is in rough shape.  Now, it was built using pallets and semi truck siding but hey, it was free.  It desperately needs some roof work and a little wall work.  It started out as a coop but when I got a respiratory infection with the birds I cleaned everything out and started using it as a machinery barn.  I will fix it up when the winds die down.

 

Ive got the green house kennel project which was never finished.  I think ill take it down as the weeding will be here in a few months.  Id like to somewhat have the yard picked up before people come over.  I know its just family but still.  Ive got the brush issue in the side yard that needs burned and reseeded but once again the wind is just to high at the moment.

Carrots – Ive had this long time dream of growing carrots.  I have never had much luck but I think this is the year.  The cinder block raised bed was actually the compost pile.  I will be adding some dirt and some sand or peat to see if I can get some softer soil.  I have been very happy with the raised beds  except I made a couple of the beds to wide.  They are kind of hard to reach the center.  I am so excited, I can wait to start growing.  I think ill start some seedlings inside this week.

  1. I know it’ll get better as it always does. I’ve already got the compost spread and a few other things done. I get so excited this time of year.
