The box that has the lettuce in it is covered so tightly, I don’t have the motivation to get in there and harvest lettuce.
The temps have been steadily in the 50s during the day and just below freezing at night. Perfect weather to work outside…but someone has been lacking in motivation.
The places where I have horse manure have sprouted weeds in this lovely weather. We’ve been letting the chickens free-range a couple hours a day and they have taken care of many of the weed seeds. My beds are no longer pretty but I just tell my OCD-self that it’s a good thing 🙂
What is NOT good is that the chickens keep digging up my newly planted bulbs! Whenever they start doing that, I put them back in the run right away! They would get to stay out a lot longer if they would stay away from the spring bulbs. Crazy chickens.
Are you harvesting in December where you are? Check out what others are harvesting at Daphne’s Dandelions 🙂
