How Hot Is Yours
I was taking some grass cuttings off the compost heap today and the steam was rising, it has been hot for about about a week now so I took its temperature
150F excellent this is the ideal temperature for killing off weed seeds bugs and other nasties
I turned the heap into the empty bay to get some air into it and bring the outside to the inside and vice verso, there was lots of heat coming off and steam
This heap wont be added to now, it will be left to do its own thing I will turn it a few more times.
Of course while I working with the compost heap who should pop up and start voicing an opinion
Lambert I dont think he approved of what I was doing as he likes to pop his head over and have a nibble at the grass cuttings on the heap.
Got the onions up today
There a few small ones and some really nice big ones, I need them to dry off now so they can be strung up, I still have another crop of onions to take up, I think we will have enough to see us through to next year.
A few more courgettes were picked
they now need harvesting every few days. There was some raspberries as well but I ate them while picking them.
There is mange tout and pakchoi to be picked but I am leaving them until tomorrow as I plan on having a stir fry tomorrow for dinner so want some fresh.
Its been a day of outside chores today, the sun has been shining a lovely day compared to the wet one yesterday, I cleaned out all 7 poultry houses they now have nice fresh bedding. Two loads of washing on the line and hoovered through downstairs. Deadheaded the flowers while chatting to a friend on the phone.
All in all a good day :-)
