Out and About on the Farm!
I wish I lived on a farm. As it is, we must do the best we can with the small amount of space we have. But, things are growing. And we're having fun. Come, have a look with me. Here is my cat Nikki. She's our grandma kitty. She's about 11 years old. She's grouchy. And arthritic. And a little bitter since we kicked her out of the garage for the summer. So, she sleeps on top of the air-conditioning unit when it's not in use. I love her, though!
Here is the composter. It is very important that you understand this. We've had the composter in the same place for several years. It makes very good compost. The interesting thing is, that one of the by-products of the compost is this very nutrient rich juice that kind of seeps into the soil over time. So, the soil under the composter is extremely fertile. Well, this year Hubby wanted to grow some melons in this area, so we moved the composter over about 3 feet.
