The plus of this goop, is it is garden gold. All of this, and what we scraped out of the chicken's area, got put on the round garden bed I am working on setting up. By spring it will have all decomposed, and make an extremely fertile area to plant whatever I want.
Even with letting this sit all day with the sun on it, it was still damp, so we had to do another layer of straw before we let the girls back in later in the day.
Speaking of fire ants..........They are evil beyond belief. We had cut our pasture before the rains hit, and got a good batch of it raked up and stored under a tarp, to use for the animals during the rains, when they couldn't be out eating. I was putting my hands in, grabbing some to feed the goats one morning, and bam! Fire ants swarmed up from the bottom and got me badly.
We are slowly getting caught up on things outside, now that we have sun again. Thankfully we didn't have any flooding. I have been constantly praying for the southern side of our state, and South Carolina, who got it the worst.
So, no, we didn't float away, it's just a bit crazy here. I am going to work hard to get back on a normal schedule for blog posts to share with you soon. Stay tuned, lots of good stuff coming!
