It was a beautiful November day today, perfect for growing dirt. The process is focused on plants we can eat. A few hardy plants are still producing.
The weeds are pulled and gathered into a bucket or wheelbarrow.
I’m happy to show you the detail after weeding!
The weeds go either into the compost pile or to the animals for power composting.
The laying hens have already eaten most of the leaves on these weeds. It’s satisfying to provide weeds as a treat to the animals. Pigs are the most appreciative.
The most recent meat chickens haven’t been out on pasture and aren’t sure what to do with weeds.
I’ll let you fill in the next step in the process. Then, ta-da, there is nice dirt to supplement the gardens with.
I’m looking forward to a great asparagus meals next spring!
