The mole probably came thru the holes the dang grass made. Still trying to get my beds done got one almost filled. I spaced I should have built a skinnier bed next to he fence like I planned.Sure hope I can keep the criters out this year. Went out lastt night to get a bag of potting soil out of the wheelbarrow. Was going to bring them by he door but it was off sided and tried to fall over. Got it back upright grabbed one bag then the handle knocked me on my butt and popped my back down by hip. Think it helped my back :)
Been working on making hive boxes all week and painting got 2 lids and a base to do yet, but I need to plant some potatoes and a few other things. Trying to get a head start this year on a few plants last freeze is April 17 so we will see what happens. It's been in the 70's and high 30's in the mornings and 40's. Built a box on 2 bike wheels. 24" X 48" for Herbs for my wife. I finished it up by lining it with plastic and installed 1/8" hardware cloth to let the water drain out in the middle of the floor.
Been outside in one of my beds sifting dirt and and Burmuda grass that has taken over about half the bed so extreme digging and this is the bed the mole got in through the plastic some how so I'm going down to plastic and pick it up and lay down some hardware cloth and lay the plastic down on the wire and we will see if those little buggers get in now. Got it half done so maybe I can get it done tomorrow. I got tomatoes up San Martino and
Both my old computers gave up. I am on brand new laptop, a process of relearning. Will be getting as long as ground unfrozen. Got some fresh seeds to plant and try in my veggie garden. Also picked up a herb, considered as on packet, Purslene. I will do those in pots.
Finally worked on my beds today geting closer, got 2 put togeher need o finish stapling the chicken wire on them. Also have to take out baby kosher weeds, till w/shovel and level ground. Then fill the boxes.
Sounds like what I had here overnight and then awake to snow all over. No planting now. Planning maybe. Just got in from clearing sidewalks, mine and public. Won't do into lawn part of yard to see who has been coming into my yard when no snow. Going to a banquet and talk and healing service. I happen to know the pastors doing this from back 1983. Wonder if they will remember me. Well done my stuff outside. Some people doing 360's out front, hope they don't go into my fence cause I am not insured at this time.
Hope you back gets better.
50s days 30s nights finally above freezing at night. The new moon is the 9th get ready to plant your peas and other above ground growers. I took planters out of mini greenhouses and put on the cinder blocks. Then we finished cutting the 2'by8"s then I jugled Rubbermade boxes looking for something and hurt my back again so getting nohing done the past few days. GRRRRRRR! Been eating my Cilantro out of the winter harvest boxes. Should be eating the spinach too but didn't. The first cutting ended up in the compost. Need to try to go o work today, wimped out las night as the wind was blowing like crazy so didn't want to drive in it and give my back an other day of rest.
So you are good on help. Here where I am help means charge big dollars. I end up doing most by myself or all.
Got second laundry going, saw a few flakes of snow but melted before it landed. Maybe I will work on my mini greenhouse and start some seeds to plant in veggie gardens, if they don't take still have garden nursery.
I hire two or three different young men at times. One is handicapped from a head injury but can do heavy lifting. He can't see well enough to dig weeds or prune blackberries though. The other fellow is also handicapped but has good eyesight. He cleaned the debris off the barn roof last time. My daughter's new beau is itching to learn how to garden! so is going to take a week off work in March & spend some time here! We will see if he still likes it after . . .
I am waiting on someone who contacted me about ad in local Kijiji. Finally I hope some sales happening. I want to get over to Garden Nursery and get veggie seeds when I do make sales and look for more hummingbird, honey bee bushes that attract. I wish I could be there to help you out but I am still recovering from accident last May.
