What a massive thank you to all that battled through the rain today. We even had two new volunteers and two visitors come down!
The main aim of today was to get through as much of the construction side of things. Beds needed building and filling with soil. So we cracked on and Simon did most of the lifting and shifting of those heavy sleepers. As a result, we finished putting together our first disabled access bed. All it needs now is filling with soil... Any volunteers for next week...???? Two other beds were completed and some of the cherry tomatoes got planted outside.
A team of three dug up any weeds that were in sight. They also sifted the soil to allow more oxygen into the ground. This really tidied up the beds and made them look alot fresher.
The chickens played in the mud but soon went in for cover when the rain got heavier. Fresh water and food and they were very happy.
It is just such a shame the sun came out AFTER we left the garden! Take a look at our photos
. I should have taken a picture of the state of my trainers and trousers when I got home! Oh well, it was lots of fun :)
