We built the raised beds in the backyard a few weeks ago out of untreated hard wood. HEAVY WOOD. But well worth it. The herbs have been transplanted into other parts of the garden for now. Check out my collage of events.
I replanted some of the herbs, lettuce and silverbeet and we've been eating a lot of green over the past week.
This last weekend we lugged 3 square meters of soil down to the back yard for the veggie patch - in a 700 square meter block, that's a mighty long way. Dad and Jeff did the wheeling while I mostly filled the two barrows we borrowed from neighbours.
We discovered beautifully composted soil in our two bins and had a few bags of horse poo that we picked up near Daylesford. The prep work is done for the veggies.
