Barking Good Soil Supplement

Morning Blogland! What an ordeal we have gone through here at the Wiccan Make Some Too homestead. All the river rock is finally gone & i was hoping to get some planting done but could not get all things accomplished with the threat of a frost warning hanging over our heads for last night. That's right kiddos, May 25th & we had a frost warning. It was on the Weather Channel app on my iphone too. What I did manage to get done was toss some nutritious yummies onto the now rock less soil. I went to visit the WalMartians & got a big bag of this for $5.00:

This was way cheaper than high powered fertilizers that could have harmed my new young plants I purchased at Home Depot last week.

It is so easy to use. Just open & spread on areas you want fortified.

I grabbed a big plastic cup & scooped & tossed the dry dog food onto the dirt. I was lucky that it was starting to rain as I did this, so I let Mom Nature give the crunchy stuff a good soaking right there on top before mixing it in the dirt a bit. Don't fret if after the rain your area looks like you are waiting for Alfred Hitchcock to do his cameo appearance. Birds of all types swooped down for a morsel or two. There was plenty to go around & still loads in my dirt after.

Whats a little offering to her creatures to thank Momma N. for the rain & all things natural?
(well, except frost right now)

When the planting starts, I have some left over that I will add a couple more pieces to each hole before placing the plants. I could not begin to tell you where I first learned of this, but I have been doing this for a long time before planting anything.

Say "Bye" to the last of the river rock leaving our property!

This is Smitty. He is my hero & the man who has taken our river rock home to live with him!
All Hail Smitty!

Smitty is a touch shy. But that is ok. We all love a humble hero!

I was wearing long sleeves working out in the yard yesterday so I went here first:

I am so used to having some color on my skin having lived in Florida for years that I am having a very hard time adjusting to the Frozen Tundra. Hell, my foundation color for make-up is Corpse Beige now!

Wish me luck that this will be the last frost/freeze warning for this area for now. Bring on Spring please!
