A Few Small Before and Afters
Just point your nose in any direction and you'll find some project that needs doing. That is the mantra we live by these days. The thing is, though, I don't seem to be able to focus on any one project. I do a little here, a little there, a little in my sleep. What follows here are a few minor projects that when taken as a whole put us on our way to making this two-acre plot of dirt our very own paradise.
Besides this evidence of bugs and mice and who knows what else, the soil is indeed dead looking. It needed some organic material, so we added a bunch of compost, micorrhizae and soil amendments hoping to kick-start the healthy soil process.
So bit by bit it becomes what we envision. There is so very much to do that it feels like we haven't scratched the surface yet I know we have put in hundreds of hours. When I look back at older photos from just last fall I realize we have done so very much, it's just that some of what we do is the foundation stuff and doesn't really pay off until years later.
I can wait.
That's it for this week at Chickadee Gardens. As always, thank you for reading and until next time, happy gardening and happy spring, everybody!
