We generally make Fridays our work around the homestead day.
Yesterday was windy, about 60 degrees and cloudy - a perfect day for working outside all day.
Mike and I clipped the goats' hooves.
I planted 120 onion plants which involves getting the soil ready as I hand dig everything. I then add compost to the walking paths and around the plants as they come up which is really to improve the soil for the following year.
So far we have lettuce, kale, beets, turnips, 12 cabbage starts and 6 broccoli starts, shell and snap peas, and carrots planted and coming up.
All of our starts, so far - cabbage, broccoli and onion - I purchase from our local organic farm.
Seed starting isn't something I have made part of our yearly routine.
This morning I am enjoying the feeling of sore muscles from yesterday's work.
