We are looking forward to the arrival of our first woofer for 2011 at the begining of April. It will be Isabelle from France with her dog, Omega, also from France!
Now we know she is coming, we can plan one more thing we'd love to get done but don't have time to get done by ourselves.
A movable chicken run would be perfect. They would slowly mow the cherry orchard, organically fertilising as they go! They would love the shade too.
We will be increasing the "bulk area" this year with a new area for the potatoes to work over, and a new area for the squash to beat out the weeds. Rotational farming almost imposes itself on you. Turning and combing the compost needs to be done soon too.
Hopefully we will have some weather soon to entice me into the garden with a notebook and pencil to build a good "to-do" list for the regular chores!
