3/5/2018 – 1st week of Early Spring

Seems sort of important to post something for this week, since it is the first week of my year. On a side note, I need to update the calendar for this year.

Been spending most of the last few weeks plotting and planning on what I want to accomplish this year. As such, I have decided that this year will mostly be devoted to getting ready, or laying the groundwork. This seems particularly appropriate since taking a break the last few years means I am starting from scratch.

Trees

I need to get quite a bit of pruning done before the weather gets much warmer. At least one set of tires needs to be pollarded before the get much taller. I will try to propagate the cuttings from the Honey Locust, Mulberry, and Hawthorne trees. Any of the cuttings that root will go to building the living fences.

I started the pruning last weekend and will probably be at it for a couple more.

Garden

Current plan is to take one of half fields (100′ x 100′) and layout 9 beds (4 for plants, 1 for a water feature, 1 for green house, compost, etc, 1 for perennials, and 2 for chickens). This year I plan to get a bagger for the riding mower and all of the grass clippings will go to mulch these beds. This will go on all year.

Fields

Mostly these will be mowed for mulch. I am debating renting a rototiller in Middle or Late Summer and putting in Rye on one field.
