Sheep and Bee Skep

I put my sheep out to pasture today!  I didn't realize when I took the picture that my little brown Coco sheep was in the picture too!  It is too cold for this fair weather gardener to work outdoors today.  I did go to a garden meeting at the library tho and also requested another gardening book, "Organic Gardening: The Natural No-Dig Way" by Charles Dowding.  Does anyone use the mulch for their gardens from the city recycling from trees.  Do you have any concerns about there being poison ivy in it?

This is my Bee Skep altho I don't have bees living in it or get any honey!  I buy my honey from a man around the corner who has bees.

I have used the town's wood chips. There are some red leaves in them, but I did not think it was poison ivy. Just in case, I used gloves and showered immediately afterward.

I have not taken a good look at the compost, but I plan to use it once I have definitive plans for my big garden.

Hi Gramz, Thanks for your input! We did end up going to the County Organic Waste one. It looked very good to me. I have not seen your town's one. We will be going back for more! Nancy at Cozy Thyme Blog
