Last Half of November 2019

More Shade Covers this time near the Chook Runs...

...over the Pond and the Asparagus Bed

Saturday 16th
Put up Shade cloth covers over the Asparagus Bed and Pond in the Chook Block garden.

Sunday 17th
Watered Worm Farm with rainwater in preparation of the coming heat. Used the run off as a liquid feed (watered down further with rainwater) on new seedlings around the garden.
Chopped Lucerne from edge plantings and used it (along with the first cut of the Comfrey and Valerian for the season) as mulch on Beds 9, 14 and 15. This feeding mulch was topped of with a layer of Certified Organic Sugar Cane mulch.
Planted out Amaranth and Sorrel seedlings around the Asparagus bed in the Chook Block near the chook run. This now has irrigation connected and a shade cover.
