monday's mountain musings
Last week during our glimpse of summer we did manage to get quite a lot done around the homestead. Potatoes and cabbage got planted,wood got moved, worms got a new mansion, garden beds got tilled and some of the compost was moved. My cuke in the loft had a baby and we harvested a couple more tomatoes. A couple nice meals of greens were had as well as a few more turnips and herbs harvested for usei n our menu. All in all the last week has been quite productive on all fronts. Hopefully this craptacular weather we have had yesterday and today will move out quickly and we can get back to spring. It is officially spring now isn't it?
This weeks plans are to continue moving compost,wood and re-potting all the tomato babies. I am making rolls today on the wood stove, may as well put it to as much use as we can while it is going. Will also cook up a kettle of beans, some pasta, rice and a pile of potatoes so that we have them later in the week for quick, easy, mostly made meals. Once the tomatoes are re-potted they will all be kicked to the greenhouse and the loft and balcony will be an experimental grow area for the remainder of the year.
