We finally had a good chunk of time when it wasn’t raining! Behold we put more beds in and there was wood chip so we did our thing. This picture is from the work area. We have a couple of more beds to put in but the drill ran out of battery and we only have enough wood for one more bed anyway.
We have left the path extra wide because we can put potato pots and things there and still have space, eventually (probably next autumn we will move/adjust some beds at the top end in order to give us more of a straight path all the way from the top to the bottom of the plot.
We didn’t do a lot more but we did take down the kale which was starting to flower. We love kale and it kept us in greens for all of the winter. I can see why this time of year is the hungry gap, we have some underdeveloped leeks, some corn salad and some tiny sprouting broccoli growing right now. That and the herbs, which are growing but don’t provide all that much sustenance! Every year I say I need to get better about over wintering and having food growing at this time of year. At least I still have some squash to eat!
There is a lot more to do but I really feel that we’ve broken the back of it. Next up compost buying and sorting but that probably won’t happen until the end of the month
