|Started mowing, compost delivered|
|Mowing short complete|
|Started cardboard and soil layers|
|Finished cardboard and soil layers|
In the corner there, the layers are going to go cardboard, soil, fresh cut grass, cardboard, compost. This should be a nice thick bed to prevent weeds and nourish the growing plants. The other areas are going to get and pile of compost at each planting site and mostly that's it. (The potatoes will get some straw.)
The hearse went into the mechanic today for it's oil & rotation visit. They bypass the back door switch for us so now it always thinks it's closed and doesn't drain the battery dry overnight.
Henrietta is enjoying being back with her flock but her time inside has definitely helped her see me as a friend instead of a scary stranger to avoid. I can easily pick her up now for her medicine and she is often underfoot when I'm out working in their area.
This week I baked some GF bread, canned some chilli, and made up another batch of bone broth. I think I'm going to start saving the bones in larger quantities so I'm not boiling a huge pot of water on warm days. Hopefully this winter I can can up a large supply and I won't need to make any in the summer.
Earlier this week we went to Ikea in Halifax so Hugslut could get some good shelves for her office. We'll likely be putting those together on Monday. It was a very long drive but they wouldn't deliver so you do what you've gotta.
The firefighters at the forest fires are just on clean up duty now. They're basically going through the burned areas bit by bit and making sure nothing is left smouldering. We drove based a burned area on the way to Ikea. It was kinda eerie.
