Projects and Plans
WHAT A DIFFERENCE A FEW DAYS MAKE...
The picture of the withered squash and zucchini is a lesson learned... DON'T PLANT THEM IN A HOOP HOUSE! Pollinators have trouble doing their thing!
The picture of the greenhouse doors shows the entrance for the rabbit which tasted the OKRA...
only ate one of two leaves and crapped all over the place !!!
No other plants sampled were found.
The latest happenings....
Spring sprang forth with the covering of our greenhouse and high tunnel;
and brassicas loving the extended cool weather, which brings us to
A TRIP THRU KITTY'S GARDEN
IS NEVER QUICK
AND THE GREENHOUSE & HOOP HOUSE
What looks like board walks are vermiculture areas for worm casting production.
Some of our unusual crops are Asian greens, Swiss Chard, Malabar Spinach, and Beet Leaf Spinach. Been having some problems with germination rates so we are beginning to sprout seed before planting.
Mother Nature shows us how to do it!
And, now we're: building a 30 X 50 greenhouse and a 30 X 60 high tunnel; initiating permaculture methods in another garden plot; re-designing a plot used for temporary plant storage into fruit production, and setting up a 30ft camper for (hopefully) temporary workers' quarters.
This is beyond projects already undertaken: preliminary ginseng, black cohosh, and goldenseal plantings as possible agroforestry crops; wood shop building addition for drying lumber and herbs; building a Wirtz pump to fill an empty pond; constructing a portable chicken facility, and completing a Forest Stewardship Plan; besides numerous small projects around the house area.
