A few little herbs to start with...approval from our 'lady of the beds'. Seeds are sown, young plants are raised in the town polytunnel. the weather improves and....hey presto...by the end of May we have a garden!

Raised beds filled with with soil and the team that filled themThe raised beds were finally completed in late February, early March. The next step was to shift nearly 55 tons of top soil and compost into them by hand. The soil arrived in 1 ton dumpy bags, which had to be taken from the car park, down the path and into the tennis court on a pallet truck. Once in place the soil had to be shovelled out of the bags and into the beds by hand. A huge thank you to the amazing soil shifters, verily 'the earth moved'.
