New garden beds

Last week we started adding new beds to the vegetable garden - we really needed more growing space, and lazy gardeners like we are, raised beds are always the right answer. So this time, instead of our typical hugelkultur, we're trying Charles Dowding inspired beds (I say inspired because we Sam did dig a bit before layering up).

A good mix and layering of soil and horse dung (that good old store-bought highly-diluted horse dung... mmm...), topped with newspaper and mulch.

There are now onions and kohlrabi happily growing in this one, and we're super excited about seeing the results! Hugelkultur VS wood-framed raised beds, bets starting in three, two, one...!
