spring 2010

initially we bordered the beds with wood but soon realised that this was too much work for the moment, so just roughly marked out beds and put in whatever we had ready. Maybe the autumn would be better for making proper raised beds. Once the top row reached the archway we started on the lower row: it was obvious we wouldn’t use the enitre plot this year so the final quarter, near the churchyard, was planted with crimson clover for 12 months.There has been an insane  amount of weeding required, mare’s tail, ground clover, bindweed and  also comfrey sprouting up everywhere. One of the first things I did on the plot in March was mark out and plant comfrey, not realising the entire walled garden was a huge comfrey bed!
