We weeded the low long beds at the Hei.
We weeded the pumpkins & corn at the Hei.
We keep watering the plants in our fifth week with no rain.
We continue working on the kitchen & bathroom house renovations.
We fix & clean up the wood storage area in preparation for winter.
We clean up the workshop in preparation for working on pallets.
We sorted & stored the winter postelein & veld sla seed & beans that we dried for the next sowing
We seeded & scratched in a flower mix in the food forest – a mix of clover, legumes & fast growing flowers to cover the soil between the berries. To do so we placed the ducks & chickens in smaller coops on the sides of the food forest & seeded as much as possible.
We made a few trips to the container park to get rid of some more excessive material around the farm.
We pruned & clipped the tomatoes, cucumbers & melons in the closed tunnels.
We weeded the sides of all of the closed tunnels.
We notice the carrots that we reseeded in low long bed 1 (which we turned over in spring) germinated nicely, but quickly died shortly after. We take note of the missing parts the seedlings are missing in the soil & try to prepare for a better environment next time around. We seeded a cover crop mix to let the soil rest & restructure till next spring.
We continue the hunt on colorado beetles.
We witnessed the beautiful concert from Martine, a viole player & singer. She took us on a musical journey starting some body work to help us get into a more recpetive state, in which we absorbed a few beautiful pre-recorded songs played over with her instruments tuned to 432 Hz, the natural frequency of music before its standardization. She guided us through a meditation followed with a group sharing of what we experienced. Beautiful & relaxing, in a few words. Thank you Martine! (See inspiring music section for her music channel if you’re curious.)
