after my coffee and a little blogging , I went out to feed the chickens. Just as I was getting ready to start raking leaves , that little hawk came flying in and landed in a oak tree near the dog lot. I wish you could have heard me hollering at that bird and making boom , boom sounds like a gun (LOL) , hoping to scare him off. I think it worked , it flew away and I didn't see it anymore yesterday. Of course it probably thought I was a
" human " loony bird :0)
The chickens enjoyed the freshly plowed garden while I was mulching the garlic. I bet there was some good " grub " in the dirt.
Between raking , mulching and picking up sticks I dug a few day lilies and planted them near the pool deck.
I picked up and dumped about 3 loads of sticks in the hugelkultur bed ,
loaded up some rotted wood and started filling in the bed.
It took about 6 wagon loads of leaves to mulch those two rows of garlic , this was the last load.
I finished the mulching , but didn't get as much done on the hugelkultur bed as I would have liked. I was one give out Nana , ready for bath and bed afterwards. It was a hard day's work , but I'm glad it's done.
