spring is here
my little tree hugger. picassa lost kassi's photo. i'll make a big post with kassiopeia in all her princessly glory.
rosie really likes her dog house
i turned all the compost--probably three yards worth. i had to build a huge temporary compost bin. it is roughly 4' by 4' by 4'. this new one took the overflow from my other three compost bins. i plan a whole new system for any new manure and refuse. three new bins will be constructed using seven pallets and my existing cedar poles. the pallets will make up three sides of the system and the poles will hold in the front. the poles will be able to come out for easy shoveling and turning.
it is truly spring we picked and ate our very first asparagus. there were no other arrivals but we are hopeful for bounty to come.
the root cellar is coming along nicely. i still need to put in the wood support. the next step will be to purchase cement and fiber reinforcement.
our peach tree is blooming. no fruit this year--we are in this for the long haul.
