I'm using this as a bit of a progress blog. If I'm not supposed to be doing this please let me know. The next 3 here are the compost area as it began the spring and as it is now. The extra space is for the 2nd bin once the first is full up, sort of like what is found in the Humanure Handbook.

Just a bit of an update. Many things are doing well however tomatoes don't look like they are sprouting well nor the peppers. The cabbages and carrots that started well have mostly lost the battle to insects so will have to replant. The heating run between the house and kennel has been flattened with some reseeding already sprouting. the other trench between the kennel and what is to be the heater shed, is in the process of landscaping. Have finally found a patch of stinging nettles but not on my property. Am looking to do a transplant so if anyone is experienced in that please advise. Am also looking for ways to use it regularly. I have mostly used it as a survival food when camping though I know it is highly nutritious. Help there is also appreciated.

All 5 wall brackets done for the 1st shelf. SWMBO will be happy when it's up and the 1st set of books get moved.
