The moon is still waxing, so today plans are to start my first seeds with above ground vegetables, early cabbage, broccoli and Kale they will be indoors under a light and planted in flats. In the garden I need to clean out my cold frame, amend with compost and plant seeds of lettuce, spinach, herbs and a few flowers like lupine, delphinium, and bee balm.
Today the goats will also get their paddock raked, cleaned, and wood chips spread to contain the mud. One nice benefit is that I'll get loads of rich compost material to layer in the pile behind the vegetable garden from them. The rabbits will get their cages all cleaned and I'll get manure compost from cleaning under their cages and spread around the blueberry patch nearby. The snow has finally melted and we've had some all night rains this last week, so now mud is my challenge. Fortunately we have large piles of woodchips in the lower meadow from cleaning up the forest, so I'll be taking my power wagon down there to fill it up. The animals are all appreciative, and so am I when doing their chores out of the mud.
Now that I have my day all planned, I'm out the door to breath in deeply with exercise and fresh air, and to enjoy being with the animals out in the sun and farm fun around here.
