It was in the 60's today--in January in Northern Missouri. Wow. I decided to take advantage and do some more outside gardening chores.
First, I checked on our new calf, "Eva" and she is doing well. She is quite a bit smaller than our black labs. She and Duke (lab) played tag for awhile today. Actually, Duke is a little bit scared of her, or maybe he is just scared of her momma, because she has horns, and her daddy because he is big...
I planted some tulips, daffodils, and iris bulbs today. I hope it freezes soon as they have to have a freeze to bloom well.
JD got the bobcat out, and tipped over my compost for me. We have a black Rubbermaid stock tank, that has a large hole in it. We dump all our grass clippings, kitchen waste, fireplace ash, vacuum canister dirt, and produce scraps into it. After he tipped it over, I spread some over the strawberries and a couple other beds. Last week I had put cow manure in the empty beds, but not on the strawberries or blueberries as it would kill them.
Then we took the bobcat up to the orchard and I had him dig up the stumps of two dead trees. He had cut them down last year, but the stumps were still in the ground.
