Around The Homestead
Yesterday we finished up the rabbit cages and put a tin roof on them. We cleaned up around the cages getting ready for the today's rain. William and some of the neighborhood kids planted some seeds and made a cold box for them. I hauled and spread mulch in the garden. I wet and lay down newspaper around the plants then spread the mulch around the plants and between the rows. It helps keep the plant roots from burning during our HOT summers and it also makes for a weed free garden. No need to hoe or till the garden at all! I didn't mulch the radishes because when they are ready I will pull them and plant something else. I only have a fourth of the garden planted and none of the raised beds so need to get back on that. We both worked till dark on our projects and were so tired we crashed early last night. This morning we were slow getting up and moving around and we both have backaches. Old age didn't sneak up on us. It hit us square in the face! LOL Enjoy your day and count those blessings!
