Weeds, weeds and more weeds...

With the warmer weather, the rain and the sun, the weeds, green manure and grass have just taken off. I spent most of the weekend, mowing the lawn, the weeds and then green manure and then pulling all the rest of the weeds out. Looking much tidier now :)

I finally cut a hole in the coop, so that Lucy and Hilda can now use their run during the day, whilst I'm at work. It's a rough looking hole, but it works. I used gaffer tape to cover the sharp edges.

Chicken run

I bought a tarp to cover the run, to provide shade from the hot sun, until I plant the passionfruit vines.

It's so exciting to see all the sticks come to life, this is a raspberry cane

This is my first bud to open and it's on the cherry tree

The prune tree is also coming alive, the rest are still sleeping

Looking much tidier since mowing and weeding.

Weeded and I have sown Good Bug Mix, which is a combination of plants, that should ensure there are flowers all year round, plus encourage lots of good insects

Same garden with Good Bug Mix sown, plus in the front is a heap of grape vines I chopped into small pieces. It is an experiment to see if they grow roots.

Compost bin is well and truly full! Apologies for blurry picture, bad light and didn't notice until I uploaded photos.

Starting 2nd compost heap (these all all the weeds from just the backyard)
