No don’t worry this is no expose on rubbish & the environment, rather well let’s go see, it’s so cool.
At the moment I think I have mentioned that we have my Cuz & his mate living here now, for a while? its awesome & we had more family visit last week. I had forgotten how blissfully exhaustive fun a 5yr old can be & the dogs had no idea what they were in for it was SOOO much fun. Mei was jumping from side to side & Walter thought this was the funnest fun ever & happily joined in. Mei had Walter sorted out from the minute they arrived if Mei said sit Walter sat, was adorable.
We celebrated 2 birthdays while everyone was here which I LOVE, everyone’s birthday should be celebrated one of the most treasured times to show people they are appreciated & loved. (cuz Craig cooked seafood, YUMM)
So no there wasn’t a lot to toss that night only scraps to the chooks. Even with the family work on the farm never stops, little Mei helped toss feed to the horses, we even had discussions with the big horse, about taking the little horses feed & of course there were the chooks to feed & no eggs though as they are all clucky & sitting on 6 eggs due soon.
You stick your hand in there & see if there are any extra eggs dare ya. You will be pecked within an inch of your life.
We had the paddock ripped a week ago & then we had our great neighbour come back with the rotary ho on the tractor this time to break up as much of the compaction as possible, dirt dust tossed everywhere. Awesome
The soil was in much better condition than we originally thought & look what we have, all those years watching the gardening shows & they sink their spades into the soil so effortlessly & pick the soil up & crumble it in their hands, well right back at ya sunshine yes there were little pockets that I could do that but now; A WHOLE PADDOCK, do paddock dance now.
You can see the start of the first market garden bed the paths will be lined with sawdust which when broken down can be tossed onto the garden beds & then relayed with new sawdust if we want. One path wide enough for a wheelbarrow narrow paths in-between just for walking around the beds & the ride on with its wagon will fit around the outside & a strip right up the middle between the main garden beds. Much fun will be had.
And look a spade, just look at it sitting there all on its own & the best thing, the best thing I didn’t have to even stand or jump on it to get it in to the soil, nope just gently pushed & it all but sank in on its own. Craig tested the soil & its pretty good we don’t have to make any great adjustments to improve the quality, so it’s a go ahead.
Cant wait to be gently tossing the produce into the little ride-ons little red wagon.
I hope that whoever your tossing around with be it family or friends or friends who are family may you have a great time & feel forever loved & appreciated.
