Week 6 – Year 2

16th March – 22nd March 2009

What a sunny warm spring feel week we had, sunny with lots of blue sky, not bad to start with the second half of March.  Lot of activities at the plot and the cultivator’s tone up the first season’s concerto…….

Plot 7’s plotter has moved in 2 chickens with cages constructed at the far end of the plot, all of us just hope this is a wise move and if not the fox will have a supreme good feast…. photos to follow…..

Seeds Galore

Lots of seeds has germinated and they looks fine but still I have to wait for the right moment to plant them in the plot…. timing is vital as said.

JCB

My JCB has been busy helping in the plot, since we have only half plot, the machine cultivator is not necessary and mainly on the manual power.  So my manual power is my personal humanoid JCB……..
