Weather has improved dramatically. I’ve spent a little bit of time in the woods sorting out some more stuff.
Put down some bases in the new location for the bees. Hopefully this will be a better place than last time and that the bees will thrive. Will need to replenish my bee stock in the next month. That is going to be expensive but needs to be done.
Started with one of the secondary ponds. Put some barley in a week ago and it seems to have cleared up the algae. Interestingly enough all the other ponds have reduced algae in as well so that is good. I’m going to plant some water plants in there over the next few weeks and follow it up with some fish at the end of the quarter. Looking at getting some fish now and feeding them up at home before moving them to the pond. Then we will see how it goes over the summer.
Still need to get the base done for the shed but just not getting the time. Will take a week off in a couple of weeks and see what I can do then.
Put in a couple more raised beds for veg and fruit so will have more food stocks.
Today I’m officially fed up of eggs. I have so many eggs from the chickens that even after I have distributed them around most of my family are fed up with them as well. I love eggs normally so luckily a gap of a few days will soon restore my liking.
