The family all help out when it comes to the big jobs , so this morning we finished mowing 3 out of 5 mowing zones , cleaned up the horse paddock , created a new compost and spread the last of the garden gold . 
when making compost it's all about layers simply put green , brown , green , brown and so on here we have used grass clippings , paper wet first some dry hay , a layer of food scraps , the pony poo and we will repeat several times before leaving it till next spring , I also added 4 buckets of water between each layer .

I also popped the pops and a few trays at the gate and will make a sign shortly . 
jamison got the eggs in from our fab free range chickens . 

and although I ran out of time to blog yesterday I got my pumpkin and corn seeds in on the heat pad , and put some carrots , parsnips and baby beets in the tunnel house , it was a bit wet for much else , lucky today is an absolute stunner . 
I am out of potting mixes for the first time in a very long time and need to rectify that .
