Last Bulbs Planted 6-5-12

Today is a landmark day, I planted the last of the 2012 bulbs today. There were a hundred or so of Edwin’s Jonquils left to plant and they went into the new Paddock bed, mostly because the bulbs should do well in the summer dry bed in the paddock. All the bulbs were fed with blood and bone with added potash and mulched over the surface to suppress weeds.

I also added a tailgate to the small mower trailer so I could cart the cereal straw from the paddock to the beds near the house. The plan for the rest of the week will be to plant the rest of my cuttings from spring, take some autumn cuttings if time permits and weed and mulch the avocado garden.

The young growing chickens are putting on tremendous growth at this stage with some very fit young birds. It will soon be time to put the older hens in the pullet house  and move the cockerels to the kiosk.

The progress of my trommel design will be in a separate post.
