This week on the farm....
The second market garden patch is still a work in progress, things have been a little slower while Taylor is in Sweden doing her Permaculture Design Course.
The recent rain has been heavenly, with a slight green tinge coming up in the paddocks and the vegetable patch really seems to enjoy the all-over soak that the dripper lines never seem to be able to replicate. It was wonderful to be weeding and to see the worms coming to the surface in the wet soil.
The rain also helps the compost piles we have 'cooking' at the moment. One of the challenges of composting in a dry climate is keeping enough moisture in the compost so that living organisms have enough to thrive and break down raw materials. The recent drench they received has got them back 'on the boil' and we are getting temperatures well above 40 degrees.
