The solar project has been the big exciting project of recent weeks, but it’s not the only project underway. In another effort to defeat moles and rats, we’ve decided to install a cement block floor in the greenhouse. Over the last few weekends, we’ve been slowly working on the floor installation. Here you can see one of the sections that we’ve covered. Forty-eight tiles down, another 120+ to go!
Inside the greenhouse, the Swiss chard doing really well and it’s just plain pretty. This is a mix of ‘Bright Lights’ and another variety.
When I looked closer, I found this guy. It looks to me like a cabbage moth, but I’m not sure. Needless to say, it suffered a tragic (for the caterpillar) fate.
Outside the greenhouse, I thought I’d show a pic of our flock in the orchard. Last fall, Derek fenced in the orchard and these are the winter quarters for the chickens. As soon as the trees start blossoming and forming baby fruit, we’ll move the chickens to their summer place in the goat pasture. What fancy chickens, they have a winter home and a summer home.
