Fertilizing My Strawberries and Blueberries With Stinky Fish Stuff

Friday October 15, 2021 Guerneville CA.

Hadn’t planned to do much today

I got it going and took care of the chicken’s needs and did some chair hopping as I didn’t have anything planned for the day.


Eventually I figured I better put this fish emulsion out. Some animal ate a small hole in the gallon container while I was away on the trip.

It was leaking out of the jug slowly but worse than that the stuff stunk.

So I poured the fish emulsion into these two buckets and added water.fishstuff


Picking strawberries

I wanted to fertilize these strawberry plants and the blueberry plants also but I figured I better harvest the strawberries first as that stinky fish stuff would likely ruin them.berries


So I got a bag and picked all the strawberries.starwberries

After that it was back to chair hopping and enjoying the day.

Gas stove repairs

The lady neighbor who I was helping figure out why her gas oven was going out called so I went over to have a look. She said the oven wouldn’t stay lit and her pie was almost ruined before she moved it to another oven, so I fired it up and had a look.

I made a couple of adjustments but eventually figured out the afternoon winds were likely blowing out her pilot light as a lit pilot light is what keeps the oven going. She likes to run the oven with the door open so maybe that is the problem.

I tested the oven out and cycled it and it worked ok maybe because the wind was down. I advised her to try it again and if it went out to shut the door and try it again.

After that I went back home and let the chickens into the front yard and chair hopped around with them until it was time to come in for the day.

Nice day.
