|A "bloody, muddy" mess|
Yesterday we finished coating the shorter bed with Eco Wood Treatment and today it was filled with soil and compost awaiting for perhaps melons. The rock was then brought in and what a difference it made. As I was watering the bed the sweat was dripping from my brow and I noticed the thermometer read 90 degrees…no wonder the kale was looking wilty.
As I watered I also weeded and figured the weeds could be added to the worm bin which got moved back outside again, hopefully we won’t get any surprise freezes.
We’ve been enjoying the onions that we harvested last year and also the potatoes that we left in the ground along with the carrots.

So we choose to celebrate Super Bowl Sunday as well as Kenny Stabler’s induction into the Hall Of Fame in a different way. Today was full of sunshine while we worked enjoying the outdoors and this evening we’ll enjoy our homemade crackers (made with basil, dill and rosemary), a good porter while we play a game of billiards.

After we’ll sit down to a home cooked meal of Chimichangas made with a chuck roast raised on a farm here in Oregon,
