Last night I saw a quarter moon indicating we are a quarter into the month of Ramadan.
This morning I began early working in the garden.
I usually attend to our chickens first, eyeing what seemed to be the largest of the flock and weighed nearly six pounds of bird. Well past broiler size I expect this bird to be a roaster at only seven weeks of age.
Earlier this week I received a small container of worms from a River Road neighbor. I’ve been slow to build a worm bin and as a consequence many of the worms gifted to me have died. Hoping to revive their population, I take a plastic storage bin add dirt, food scraps and moisture and hope for the best.
The container plants are growing well although I’m beginning to get concerned that some of the plants aren’t getting the nutrition they need from the soil. I think I’ll add fertilizer to the plants near the time for sunset prayer.
The plants in the raised bed are well and the plant starts I started from seed are beginning to grow strong. One of our potted apple trees are beginning to produce fruit and the currants are producing well even though they could be potted up to a larger container.
