Dig That Dirt

Got the rabbit poop started – collecting it at least. Also have a small bag of worm castings.

The evening weather is just now cool enough to dig the dirt out of the raised bed that the bunny poop is going to go into.

Located the “bottom” of the bed. Some sort of wire mesh. It’s all rusted out, so I’m going to have to replace it..If it wasn’t for those pesky gophers.

About 2/3rd dug out. 14 5-gallon buckets worth. Doing 7 buckets per day so as not to induce a migraine. Putting the dirt in an area that the gophers aerated.

Listening to the hummingbirds fight, the fish pond gurgling, the water fountain cascading. The scent of four o’clock flowers fills the air..which is why I enjoy doing this work in the evening.

Of course, THIS is what I’d rather be doing to the gophers..Blow up gopher holes!  As far as I could tell, no gophers were harmed in the creation of this video.

To be continued…
