Good thing is: The house blocks the cold winter north winds
Bad thing is: Only gets like 4hrs of sun

91 here. Watering young plants twice in 1 day in mid May feels really weird. LOL Considering they just finished hardening off and got transplanted.


Was too cold to plant last week. LOL


Meanwhile... check out the snowstorm in Colorado and Wyoming going on today.

I didn't water yesterday because I was promised massive thunderstorms and maybe hail.

You can probably guess what actually happened.

and here we can't even get the rest of the planting done due to the rain. It has been coming down off and on all week, with more today. In fact we have areas of flooding and lots of wind damage. I was hoping to get my last planting done today, but looks like it might be Monday before I can wrap it up and wait for the results to start coming. heck, we aren't even going to the farmers market today like we had planned. the positive side, the weather is cool enough to be comfortable and warm enough for the plants to grow.

Turning the compost pile finally. Was getting matted, and flattened too much with little air inside it.





Nice and fluffed up now.





Lots of worms underneath and inside the pile. As well as millions of microorganisms too.

Compost Comparison. I just love seeing the transformation. Just leaves, kitchen scrap and Horse Manure with wood chips in there.


November 2016
April 2017
May 2017


I'll do a final in July or so.

Yes! Reminds me, there used to be a documentary film back where I lived (CT Valley of MA) called The Nicest Dirt I Ever Saw.

Hmm, I may have to look into that. Sounds interesting.
