KNIT ME SOME HAPPINESS-THE GARDEN-CAMP WOOL-FREE MANURE

20 09 2015

GREETINGS

Its a beautiful, crisp morning with a hint of fall in the air.   Tomorrow the men come to do the drainage in the back of the barn.  Lots of fencing has to come down this afternoon.  It will be great to have that done. I have had some computer woes this week.  Updating and cleaning up has caused havoc.  I upgraded my iPad and now I can’t do anything with it.  THANKS APPLE, I WILL NEVER UPGRADE AGAIN!!!!! My lap top I did manage to get it going again but when Chris comes he will have to  work on it.  He will have it fixed in a jiffy.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

THE GARDEN

Because of the work being done in the back some things have to be picked now.  I pulled up this gigantic heirloom  radish.  I will try it in my next salad.

I also planted leeks this year and had to pull up some.   They will be frozen in slices for soups or tarts.

DYEING WOOL

I have been busy dyeing wool this week for CAMP WOOL in Kennebunk, Maine.  (If you haven’t been there its a wonderful place for lovers of all wool crafts) I hope to have it all dried and sent out soon.  

FREE MANURE

Why buy when you can get it for free right on the farm.   Great for starting new gardens just spread it on top and let winter do its work.  Bring a truck or bags.  Ingredients: sheep poop, some hay and shavings.  Most of it has been brewing all summer so its safe to put right around plants now.

Many thanks for reading my blog today and I hope you have a lovely day.  Carole

I am glad you liked it. When I watched it for the first time it made me smile. I had to pass it along. Hope all is well with you

Your wool looks like cotton candy and mashed carrots! 🙂 I wish I had a truck to come take away your manure mulch, my garden would love it! Enjoy this gorgeous weather!

I am hoping that I can find a few people who will take the manure . Its a constant supply and I have way too much for this small farm. What a beauty of a day.
