So far I have filled 7 raised beds with compost soil. Im half way there :) Its a slow process. It takes time to build raised beds but after they are ready there is no much to do but remove a few weeds which might appear every no w and then. It is VERY easy to remove weeds from such beds since weed roots do not cling to hard clay soil but very loose compost soil :) Adding every year 5cm thick compost layer is all there is needed to maintain it. You can see in the background that the green house is not finished. The reason is that I have no material to cover the walls......
My local recycling plant has no knowledge of Reuse but rather they are very good at Refuse :( I asked them nicely today if I can get these old windows for my greenhouse and they said NO! Its against their policy apparently :( They pay money for the container to be emptied yet, so it is in their interest to let me take these windows so they dont have to empty it that often. I even offered to pay them some small money to take the windows and they still replied NO! :( Such beautiful old windows will go to waste. It saddens me greatly indeed :(
But not all seems gloomy :) I have got a new toy :)) a new trailer :)) Now I can get pallets and others stuff easily and transport whatever. It sure is a big help when living in the country side. I have got many pallets from my new friend Sophia today. Now I have enough pallet planks to make a few more bee hives :) for free :) Beekeeping doesnt have to be expensive!
This is the first Honeybee in 2014 that has appeared in front of my eye :) such a joy!
It seems that even Ladybirds have woken up :)
