The Elements


Checked the vehicles this morning, to see that the solar panels are topping up the batteries.  Yep, that is correct, -4 oC.  Wind is coming from the opposite direction today, so a little bit warmer this afternoon.  

Been out, putting compost into pots to try and grow seedlings on in the dining room.  No idea if this will work, but no green house means we have to be inventive.  They can grow on, whilst we think about the beds.

Reading a lot about permaculture at present.  I am hoping to get lots of ideas and what is possible in my area.  Gosh, it is time like this that I become really homesick. This is a challenge.  I hope I can defy the elements and grow something in the garden.  Wish me luck.

Be well

Hello
Have you thought of making a manure heap in a raised bed ,cover with some soil and as the manure gives out heat, you can plant seeds in pots and trays and put them on top of the heap, then cover them over with bubble pack or glass to keep the heat in. Should get them started early.
Good luck
