Animal assisted February gardening
I took advantage of the warm weather to gather some stump dirt
for onion seed starting this week. The goats "helped"...which means
they poked their noses into the bucket repeatedly, completely confused
about why I would waste energy gathering something that wasn't
The tractored hens
also assisted with early garden preparations. Day by day, I pulled the
small flock across the downhill side of a high raised bed in the swampy
back garden so they could eat up chickweed and scratch up dead oat
stalks. This area will go under a quick hoop shortly to preheat the soil
for the earliest lettuce and peas.
