This mixture contains yet more bee attracting flowers, which is good as bees ( and other insects) need all the help they can get.
So I wandered around the garden, seed bombing wherever there was a patch of bare soil which I wanted to become a patch of wild flowers. We already have LOTS of patches of wildflowers, but in my opinion you can never have too many :-)
As always, Cassi Cat ( my amber eyed familiar) came with me and watched in some bemusement as I scattered little round balls of clay. I think she hoped they would be something to eat! She did try to nibble on one but I think the chilli put her off :-)
While seed bombing by the garage I noticed a lot of Bumblebees coming and going from a nest box,
which normally contains Blue Tits
not this year - it is full of Bumblebees nesting, instead!
Can you see her bottom? just going in through the hole?
I am in the process of filling up the compost bins again - its a bit like painting the Forth Bridge - never finished!
I have a load of "greens" waiting - the pile is getting very hot and was steaming.
An experiment - I have never tried transplanting carrot seedlings before, but as I was asked about it on a Composting stand I decided to try it - we shall see what happens to the carrots. I used a big pot and filled it up with my favourite peat free fertile Fibre growing medium and then carefully transplanted the seedlings without damaging the roots. I suspect they will grow forked, but who knows, it may work?
Compostman was outside scything while I was doing all this. He presented me with yet more green stuff to add to the compost pile ;-) He knows what makes me happy :-)
