Finished installing raised bed 17 now and gravelled the side areas. Just needs a hoe and rake next week and will be ready for me to install the poly-tunnel over it for growing salad crops.  That’s it for raised beds now except for the brick ones that need building up at some point, and any repairs to any boards as some of them are suffering from dry rot I think (they were all used scaffold boards when acquired).

Lisa wrapped up preparation on the rest of the beds and all are now ready to plant up. If the rain holds off for this week and the plot dries out a little more we are good to go with a mass planting session next weekend with at least a full bed of each food group to be planted up and the first potato bins of the year.

Finally things are about to get interesting 🙂
