Today we seived some stones out of one of the largest raised beds. This will improve the soil for the plants.
We potted on the small tomatoes into larger pots. The stems are fragile so we had to be careful and hold onto the roots and leaves rather than squeezing the stem. We buried the stems a bit to encourage more root growth.
We showed Mr Carr, the new gardener, how to clean out the chickens.
We turned some compost into a new large compost bay that we had cleared of gravel. We had to be strong because the wheelbarrows were heavy and it was very muddy! One wheel barrow had a flat tyre! Near the bottom of the compost heap, it looked more rotten and like soil. It is nearly ready! The chicken poo will add good nutrients to the compost.
