We’re busy in the kitchen garden!
The spring planting season is approaching fast so we got our tools out and made the most of last week’s sunny days. With some expert advice from Dan, Rob braced the wind and chilly temperatures to set up the next batch of raised beds.
One of the reasons why we initially decided on a no-dig, raised bed approach is that the soil in the kitchen garden has a very high clay content. It makes digging a real chore as it either forms heavy lumps when wet or gets rock solid when dry.
At this time of the year, it’s completely saturated with water which means, any work you undertake soon turns the ground into a complete mud bath. Not the most enjoyable conditions to be working in so a big thank you to Rob for taking on the job. I’m excited about filling the beds and start planting!
