Manuring the garden
The truck, wheelbarrow, and
shovel got a real workout yesterday, with me and Mark using them in
shifts. First, I unloaded the rest of the manure on top of half a truckload
chicken compost so
that Mark could drive out to get gravel while the ground was still
frozen. All morning, I spread manure in the mule garden,
focussing on the beds that we'll be planting in February and
March. Mark got home just as I was finishing up and took the
wheelbarrow out to work
on the driveway.
I estimate we each moved about the same volume of material, which means
he probably worked about three times as hard as I did.
Our homemade chicken waterer is the perfect way to keep a broody hen hydrated right on the nest.
