Planted a number of carrots: Dolvica (pelleted), Oxheart, Red-cored Chantenay (the last of the seed), and covered with burlap from work. Prepared the bed with a very conservative quantity of Down to Earth Starter Fertilizer beforehand.
1 more broken Ancona egg (16 now)
Neat to see the rooster rush in to stop a hen squabble, and he tattled when Basie let himself into the bird side of the yard.
The 3 ducklings I kept from Papi’s hatch (blueM, piedM, atipico blackF) are incredibly cute and outgoing, though the pied one tugged my earring, punched my eye, and pinched my nose.
Helped at work’s garden – we laid ground cloth, pegged & slit it, and I sowed carrots, beets, kale, & chard while the beds ahead of me were leveled and more soil tilled. Rained as we wrapped up, and then was sunny today – perfect for new seeds.
Peeked at pre-emergent mashua and another beginning to leaf. Moved ex-pen panels (x4) to surround where I think the mashua are.
Both goumi, one Siberian pea, and the honeyberries are budding – the Sugar Pies are already forming little green flowers.
