Weeded greens


[From 18-Apr-2013] Greens from the unheated greenhouse, grown in the subzero cold, tossed on one of the majestic mountain ranges of composting cow manure. It’s actually weeds from around the overwintered spinach, plus a little overlooked rotting winter squash in there as well, if you look close, all waiting to be turned in.

    You raise cows too?

    • Nope. The manure comes after being stacked for a year or two, from a farm just down the road, and we continue to compost it here. They have some big machinery, for hauling gravel and stuff, including a dump truck (!) so delivery of tons at a time is easy and cheap, and I know exactly where it comes from. Lucky me!

    That’s actually a nice shot with the bright hit of the greens. kinda ironic considering it’s a pile of dung. does remind me that i too have some compost turning to do.

    Good stuff. Getting back to our roots as farmers. I like it! (Pun totally intended here!)
