to hold the melons up so they don't pull down or break the vines.
I planted them in the greenhouse and let the vines climb on the shelf, so all fruits stay on it and are quite safe (and comfortable) now :D

Kept playing with my vertical planter idea. Peas are transplanted 3 days ago, now they grow happily upward.

As the weather will remain cool and rainy for a while, this idea should work well. Now it's 65% filled. The mixture of compost and old chicken manure which I used for planted tulip in January is now recycled as part of the materials. Can't believe there are so many earthworms inside. Well, they also moved to a much higher "building" now :ya

The second guests that moved in are spinach.

Next, different varieties of salat greens and lamb's lettuce will move in, and I will plant some middle-sized white radish on the top of this vertical planter.

Kept working on the vertical planters for my chickens (the one in my vegetable garden is improved from this idea), kind of combination of cold compost + vertical planter. Besides offering additional fun and food for the chickens, I also have some fun when I am here with chickens, to watch how plants grow.

A chicken sunday, re-arranged some stuffs for them.

One flock got an extended playground in a corner of hedge, I guess I can harvest more "nutritious" leaf mold in the future.

The other flock got a roofed party room with sandbath, I might plant some leafy green on their roof.

Baby chicks got a mobile pen to enjoy summer picnic and camping with Mama. They might do some gentle mowing work as well.
