Our Magic Apple Life

Picked up the extra deer netting today to finish netting off the large back garden area from the chickens and picked up some burlap to lay down over the front hugel that is destined to grow raspberries... This will be my second year putting in raspberry starts... so, wish me luck! Last year I didn't have the bed finished early enough and the starts were put in rather late. I was hoping for some new growth to start this year... but I'm pretty certain that they won't be popping up on their own.
The large veggie hugel and the other smaller ones have successfully kept our 2 cherry, 2 apple and 2 peach trees thriving!!! I'll post more pics of the healthy buds coming out on them as soon as the sun comes out to get some decent ones. What a FEAT for living in dry high desert!!!
Ok, off to go prep to keep those dirty free ranging chickens out of my gardens
