How does your garden grow?
This weekend we have been hefting organic compost about, collecting free chippings for the paths and clearing a new area to put under cultivation.
The original veg area has now got all its raised beds (albeit very lowly raised!) in place and we are ready for the warmer weather. There is suddenly so much more room now that we have the new area coming along and eventually that will have gazillions of raspberries that will fruit all summer and into autumn but I need to get the ground clean of bindweed first.
Beds ready to rock and roll
Patch still being cleared; about half as big again as the area in the first picture
We started off using wood from a local hardware superstore but I can now get shipping crate wood from work so that is what we have used for most of the beds and also for our 4 compost bins, two of which you can see here.
