I've still been getting the kids up at a decent time as mine seem to suffer if they have late mornings and inevitably later nights as they can't sleep. The kids helped me by feeding and watering the chickens and then collecting the eggs. What a haul from the last couple of days!
The bed I'd tasked myself with today was the fire pit bed. The previous owner had burnt allsorts in it and I'm forever finding nail, hinges and the like. I added manure to the soil along with blood, fish and bone and hoped for the best. Well the cabbages did marvellously and I'd put off harvesting them until my 2 weeks break.
It was a mammoth task.
