Blue sky day
It sure was a blue sky day and the temperature was nice too, just a heavy shirt did the job. When I went outside I sat down here and enjoyed the day for a bit before turning the chickens loose.
After turning the chickens out to graze I loaded the fertilizer injector and put it on this sprinkler over one of my garden pens.
I then sat down here to get ready to load that wheelbarrow with woodchips.
Which I did and now to wheel it across the yard to the raspberry patch.
I dumped it in the raspberry patch and let the chickens spread it out for me. They did a good job of it.
I hauled a few more loads of woodchips throughout the day taking my time at it.
As I went by this area I looked over to this spot that wasn’t going to get any woodchips but sure could use some. I vowed to get two loads to it just because and it would be better than none.
There’s a lot of leaves that fall from the forest trees along my driveway that are a good source of mulch so I got a few loads of that I also took to the raspberry patch.
I don’t mind the leaves along the drive as I leave in a forest. I only pick them up as they make good mulch.
The chickens especially liked the leaves and made short work of them.
I put the wheelbarrow here for tomorrow and sat down and enjoyed the day some.
And eventually took a load over to that spot I said would get only two loads and dumped it. Two little piles but one load so it will get one more. There’s a small apricot tree there that should benefit.
There wasn’t much day left as I sat down here again.
One more time
I was looking at this cherry tree that also wasn’t going to get any mulch so loaded the wheelbarrow one more time and dumped a load there.
That was it for me and the chickens. I shut them in and headed for the house.
That’s what I need! Chickens to help me do the work in the back yard!!! Who knew??
