We had lots of water and high winds, but thankfully no bad damage at
our place. It's definitely wetter than usual, but it's now clear
skies and dry enough that I have to water my seedlings daily again.
We mulched my main garden heavily with grass hay I bought over the
weekend just this morning. Peas are blooming now, tomatoes look
nice and strong, onions are growing quickly, rhubarb looks beautiful,
picking asparagus every other day, and it's nice and lush looking
with all the irises blooming now. My roses are beginning to bloom
and I'm sure would already have if the goats hadn't eaten the tops
off them before I got their fence secured.
I planted garlic bulbs around my fruit trees and I'm going to mulch
them and try seeding more perennial herbs as I have the time. I
have a packet of daikon radish seeds that I want to also plant
around the place and see how they work in different parts of my
I've been mulching my flower bed behind my house with the droppings
and hay from the bunny cottage and when it's full I'll begin
mulching my grape vines and other flower beds as well. I'd like to
get some more geese soon for the orchard also.
