I was so inspired after our get together at Joanne Chungs place on Sunday, I got hubby to mind the kids and I ventured into the garden. I extended the fence around the garden to incorporate a much bigger area and then I made a new garden bed.
The first garden bed is on the right and the new one is on the left. I have started filling it with dirt from the floor of my chicken run and compost from a pile of bark mulch that I never got around to spreading (now well composted).
I wonder what I should plant first???
Still plenty of room for more garden beds within the enclosure. The piece of shade cloth will be another gate, so I will have a gate at both ends.
The fence is needed to keep the wallabies, chickens and my son out.
I finished filling the bed and sewed a green manure. I used all my old seeds and some wild bird mix seeds. Then I stuck bamboo into the grund on the sunny sides of the bed. This will shade the seeds while they get established (I am quite proud of this idea).
