Lots Ticked Off The List
It has been a great start to the year with lots of projects and jobs getting ticked off the list, it makes wonder what I am going to do with myself the rest of the year.
The aquaponics system is now in place filled with water and running, new paths have been put down in the poly tunnel
Martin had a helper when moving the slabs.
With the slabs down I could get to work on the growing areas, there is another behind the tank.
young seedlings have gone into the aquaponics grow bed
Goldfish have been added to help kick start the system before we add edible fish.
Here is a video showing it all working, sorry not brilliant sound quality.
My garden shed had a bit of a battering during the last storms, part of the roof was ripped off and windows broken the whole shed flooded
New heavy duty roof gone on
windows repaired and a coat of preservative.
The shed got emptied and a load of stuff went on the bonfire
the lovely weather has meant I could have the doors open to dry it out and have a reorganising session.
I have checked the beehive that I moved the bees into, lots of activity so it looks like a success, I will open it during the week and have a good check over what is going on.
Last night the goat mamas were given a pedicure all ready for kidding, Thelma at the back is due in about a week, followed by Connie at the front and Helen in the middle, Enid who is just out of camera has settled in well and is not in kid. We have to get some kidding pens set up in readiness now.
The stray sheep on our land produced another lamb, the owner collected the sheep the other day so the sheep saga is over.
It was not a good ending but I am not discussing it on here.
So all major projects on my list are just about complete looking forward to enjoying some of the good weather coming this week.
