What a better thing to do on a snowy day than shoveling horse shit...
The soil being frozen where our perennial herb garden will be located, we are covering it with straw and horse manure. The area will be watered and covered with black plastic over the weekend. The sun will then heat up the compost material and soften the soil underneath. In a few days, we'll be ready to dig that area and turn the compost under.
We continued cultivating the front of the property, and area that was dry thus not frozen.
A garden is now ready to be designed in the front. Once the new beds and paths are created, the beds will be top-dressed with our fine compost that we started six months ago.
Thanks for the hand Coleman!
