Blog 43 🏡 It’s March already ! The weather has changed from warm days in February to wet & VERY windy for few days, flipflop Summer hurry up !! 🌞Actually last few days this month have been very warm, it’s sitting outside weather🌞….YES !
Jobs so far this month included finishing the chicken coop with shingle and it’s nice and clean walking in there now, no muddy marks on the eggs and easier to clean everywhere. Yet again the chickens have laid all through the Winter, which is amazing as they are supposed to stop, so a good supply of eggs always available. It’s time to sell them at the front of the house 🐔🐓🐔🐓
Remaining shingle has been put around the path at the back of the house, another job finished, just going to add a gate or fencing at the end of the path out towards the road.
Would like next project to be sorting a new vegetable plot, moving it from area we used last year at back of garden but had a poor show of veg, some not even growing at all ! Now I imagine it’s a combination of not being an expert at growing veg, not being in a good part of the garden, last Summer was very warm so maybe not watered enough ? So decided to move it nearer the house, combining it with the area where the herbs & strawberries are at the moment and see what happens this year. Determined to make them grow !! Let’s see what happens over the growing months !
As the weather changed for the better this weekend, decided to make a start on vegetable plot, going for a much smaller one this time to see if it’s a good position & you never know could be bigger next year if successful !🌶🌽🍎
Seeds ordered, get them planted soon & see what grows this time ! 🍓🍅🌶
Had Thatcher Phil call by to tidy the roof mainly on the right front of the house, it’s the crows having a go trying to get out the insects, they pull out the thatch & just drop it on the floor, what a mess ! Wire has been laid on that corner of the thatch & other corners pushed thatch back in & see if that sorts problem ! Looking all ok after a few days. Oh yes, also moved one of the pheasants to road side of house ! 🆒👍
So looking ahead to April, if this weather stays good, the plan will be to finish painting the outside of the house, quite good planning that we have already painted the two sides that show from the front of the house, so looks a complete job, sneeky !! Oh yes another job, take down those Christmas lights !!
