Yes, this morning we awoke to snow. But, it didn’t last.
This raised bed is in the front yard. I will be adding composted buffalo manure that I will be getting from a rancher friend. Yea! This is the year of the manure. Ted and I will be married 29 years in May and I told him that I want lots of manure as an anniversary gift. :) Notice the dry stacked little wall in the back. I started this little wall with bits of rock I’d find around the yard. In the country sometimes you will see circular stacks of flat rocks. We call them “sheepherders monuments”..
This bed is on the side yard. Notice the bit of rhubarb trying to get started. Ted loves rhubarb pie and I make sure to make him some.
One more raised bed made from those rocks that were in the pond. This is my Ventomatic – It is a cold frame. It automatically opens up when the inside temperature reads 72 degrees. I have had this for many, many years. I bring it out in the spring and use to to grow seedlings and harden off plants. This year I have brocolli started inside. I plan to plant it into medium clay pots and sink them into the soil. I am also planning to soon start some swiss chard and spinach in this cold frame.
