3 posts in one day! Oh my!
Ok actually it’s really really slow at work today and my mom who is up at the property right now took some pictures and sent them to me. Specifically I asked her to send me pictures of the garlic but she sent me some others, so I thought I’d post them 🙂
Here’s my first compost project. I actually had a whole bunch, about 30 pounds, of old rancid soap that I’d made. I wasn’t going to use it, so this was my project to try and compost it. Supposedly soap will compost. As you can see, it’s been spread out quite a bit. I imagine the wildlife have been picking through it a bit. I layered it lasagne-style with cardboard, rabbit manure, leaves and the soap. It’s kind of an eyesore, but was fun!
Yeah yeah, just another forest picture, right? Well yeah, I guess so. But it’s a pretty picture, huh! This is actually the spot (I think) where I will be clearing it out and making a meadow that will someday become a farm.
This is the view from our homesite. Isn’t it beautiful? This photo was actually taken from down below at the “bench” but it shows the view the best. We’ll probably top off or clear out some of those taller trees since there’s plenty of woods behind us and that way it will not obstruct the view. I can’t wait!
