Here’s some photos from the work in the veggie garden over the weekend. 🙂
The corrugated iron edges from the long garden bed have been used to create the corner bed at the top of the photo.
Once the chooks have finished their work in the upper terrace,the wire will be removed and reo mesh upcycled into trellis for the grapes I’m planning to plant here. I want my veggie garden to be a mix of annual veggies and fruits and perennials like berries and grapes. They will provide shade and beauty and help create micro-climates. Well, that’s the plan anyway. Grape leaves will also hopefully provide shade for the goats and hens too as I will train them over the top of the chook pen. A choko can also add its large leaves to the shading mix too.
The area where the bench now sits has had its tyres ripped out, the soil moved into the garden bed and tiles are down now. Today’s work with Jas and Eggra as assistants. 🙂 I have 1 tyre to move now and then the northern fenceline is finished, in the lower terrace anyway. Stay tuned for more updates as they happen. 😀
