I could have gone into work today and used one less vacation day...but that's no fun. So instead i stayed homeside and worked on a fence for the other part of the garden where the shallots have two rows already ..probably more plants to go there that are less drought tolerant...like corn or maize. the quinoa will most likely go on the other side of the road where the compost is now. Along with possibly some winter squashes and whatnot.
new section of garden all mulched with straw and fertilized with alpaca manure
three pallets make up the north-east wall
the other part is a firteen foot section of cattle fencing I found on the side of the road
post hole digging blog to come soon...three or four posts to go in the south-west side to support and maybe a better gate..eventually
also need to put up boards to keep washouts from raiding our precious topsoil (lesson learned from last year...challenges of farming on a hillside
attached together with hardware and small boards...easily taken down and better yet...free!
bird feeder stand with shocks of corn
drip lines and bird bath...both moved over to make way
chainsaw is in pieces again...tomorrow off to get a new spark plug..hopefully that's why it wont start..can't wait 'till i can get a good stihl or something comp. in a few years.
firewood all cut and stacked
Dave's Stuff tarp stakes and an 8 x 10' tarp
the stakes are easily pushed into the rocky New Mexico soil
secure for more wet winter weather
