Beds are cleared

The beds are being cleared and next the planting - you can only imagine what a mess the garden was in! The thought of all those wonderful organic vegetables is worth all the hard work. We use only compost and it works so well one wonders why people bother with fertilisers. The taste of an organically grown vegetable straight out of the garden is something that no shop bought produce can compare to or equal.

Oh where do we start!!!!!

Well here we have three willing gardeners surveying the mess. It is hard to decide where to start. The beds must be cleared and the mass of vegetation removed before planting can start. Fruit trees have to be trimmed and pruned. however we will get there soon.
Thank goodness my computer and the power is back and I can look on the Internet for tips I might need. We were without both for 12 days!

Our once pristine vegetable garden is now a mass of weeds. With no one to help an achre and a bit of garden can be too much to cope with.
However help is now at hand - we have allowed an old friend to take over our domestic quarters, which we are no longer using, in exchange for helping us out in the garden.
he held a vegetable gardening course a week back and we now have the start of a vegetable garden again!
