The old hatchery is starting to look like a winter greenhouse. After Kevin filled the bottom of the concrete tanks with logs and rocks, he and I shovelled bucketfuls of sand to fill them up half way. We poured water on top to help it settle.
Then Kevin lugged several heavy bags of compost, which we bought from a farmer in Copey. Kevin put some in every tank.
Our own compost heap is cooking well so I dug into it and added some of that rich, nutritious soil for an extra boost. I love the fact that we have our own organic compost... soon we won't have to buy someone else's mixture. Our compost has no stones, either, which is a big bonus in my book.
Then I planted my seedlings: tomatoes, lettuce, red peppers and squash.
And now, we water, wait, and wish for the best. It's very exciting... I sure hope it works out.
