And when it does everything enjoys it. Maybe except of the travelers...
Evening the road an unexpected thing was discovered... the stuff is composting and there are earthworms living in that wood chips road cover... mind you there are very large wood chip trucks going over it... ones tree services use, they are 5 tons at least...
Hm... that's kind of... I do not know... farm fork... rest... pause... quiet...
So, the new 2017 garden beds update.
All is coming to the close of the season.
Now this one is called the circle of life garden. Because of sunchokes. They do make a circle.
It's not bad for BTE over the concrete at all. These things are 6-8+feet... for some of them when they were not all under the snow
Borrage is all done, only late season wild flowers are there
Keyhole garden is all cleaned up, winterized just not planted with garlic yet
And perspective of all garden clusters with my new under construction permaculture cluster bed
it all gets lost in the fog. And no I did not mean those are mine... :), they are in the fog... come, look and go.
Fog in orchard perspective
close ups... oh that cheat grass germinating... soon the winter ground covers and wild flowers will go. but maybe I'll just throw wood chips there again
Someone's home in there... hopefully bull snake and not voles or some other rodent
And the ugly tumbleweed... gotta pick that up...
My C-shaped mounds have cover of wood chips and also generous helping of borage plants. these will sprout in spring and will be nice for the bees.
but he's (Alpha) wide away and on the guard duty on the front of the kitchen garden (he sure wants in... the WORMS... yeah, right dude, that's a negative in form of 6 feet fence )... and some others are digging behind the garden tearing up my bindweed (under the supervision of the Alpha's very own son). Better that than my new flower bed :)
that's my next project for the autumn, to get it all fixed and covered. These maples are on theor last leg and their replacement Russian hawthorns will be plated as soon as out 70+mph winds subside... it's pretty crazy afternoon...
Ponderosa is not doing badly, but I know that red ring blight is there, the trees is fighting it, I did see the sap at new needles where the blight fungus is trying to set. Locust trees need a good trim and snow and wind damage clean up.
