It's been hot, hot, hot in Maine. 6am I'm out there in the gardens and then after the kids go to bed I try to sneak in a bit of time before the mosquitoes drive me away.
My day today...
6am I started to put chardboard down, mulch and make some wire protectors for my five new apple trees.
Picked squash bug eggs on my hugelkultur garden (Dug trench, put in logs, sticks, leaves, chicken manure, compose and wood chips). This is the first year of a hugel garden and it's bursting. I direct seeded all these pumpkins and squash.
