Vermin-free Kale

So far so good.

With netting to keep caterpillars out, and fencing for rabbits and deer, we  might just be able to eat our garden ourselves this year. Rich soil comes with many friends. We use no inputs except those we harvest from the compost pile, the chicken coop, and the woods. I direct seeded yesterday because, true to form, we did indeed get one last frost, very late, but by date.

The last of the nettles came in today. They flower any minute now and are already way past the early stage. But they still cook up and don’t seem to hurt.I’ve read a lot about them and am not convinced only ‘small is possible’.  Just that small is lovely, rich and very rewarding for well-being.

Let the watering and weeding begin!
