Everything we planted in October has grown! Thanks to a ridiculously mild winter the leguminous plants – beans and chervil – have grown and served their function to further decompact the soil and improve it’s quality.
The swales and step constructions are holding up nicely and there is some evidence already that the soil is improving behind them – we have moss growing!
The roof is looking good and growing grass – sadly the pine trees we transplanted are not thriving.
Next steps – give those poor trees a ton of mulch and buy a sack of alfalfa seeds to plant a greater area with soil improving plants.
