permascot: Here’s the state of our second garden area (behind the house, zone 2). It’s a bit of a mess at the moment. One large bed made by sheet mulching and planted with onions. A second bed behind that with sandy soil ready for carrots. The garden is split in two by the swale, then, behind the swale, will be more verg beds. All the beds/paths are on contour so will be acting like mini swales (the paths between the raised veg beds). Today is the first day all month that we have not had heavy rain - beautiful to be out in the sun again! Oh, and we have the polytunnel still to put up which will be put at the bottom of the garden close to the back door.
