I've had a busy morning outside but no mowing or mulching was done.
I did pull out some more moth-eaten cabbages and I now have 6 of them soaking in salted water to try and get the caterpillars out of them. If it doesn't get them to come out then it might kill them. I'd rather eat a dead, salted caterpillar than a live one but maybe that's just me. Not sure how I will use them. More coleslaw. Maybe cook some up with onion, zuchinni and whatever else I can dig up and some rooster and freeze. Dunno.
Raked out a bit of one chookpen.
Searched for and found the sprinklers and set them up in the chookpens to cool them down.
Most of the washing is done and dry but awaiting the fold and put away bit.
Cabbage free garden beds have had the soil loosened and wettasoiled. I need to decide what I am putting in them and then get them manured and mulched ready for when I buy more seedlings.
Caught and crated some roosters.
Not a lot when you read it like that but it seemed to take me all morning. I will start on the mowing this evening but in the meantime I have what looks like a good book to get stuck into.
Hubby culled 6 roosters and they are in the fridge awaiting the frypan. That should make for quieter morniings.
