Beginnings Of A Winter Garden

Good Horsey

I think I should have been a bit more descriptive with this photo montage:
Photo #1 - lovely Arab mare, Emi, aka the compost maker.
Photo #2 - gigantic pile of composted horse poop, courtesy of Emi.
Photo #3 - red worms happily breaking down the horse poop.
Photo #4 - composted horse poop being shoveled onto and mixed into garden beds.
Photo #5 - Chard, broccoli and arugula starts.
Photo #6 - the compost maker up close and personal.

Ah, country life!

You reminded me that I have to start planning now for what I would like to do later. What a sweet-looking horse you have.

Nice horsey!
It's too wet here for much of a winter garden...although I did have Brussels sprouts and leeks the first year. I just hated slogging down to the garden to pick anything! What are you planting?

Looks like its going to be a very healthy garden with all those worms working!! Horsey looks very gentle and has gorgeous eyes.

So that's how it's done. Very cool. Very beautiful horsey.

Very cool. I am jealous that you live somewhere where you can actually garden in the winter. (Have I mentioned lately how I hate winter here?)
