Late Autumn 2018

Here is what the upper level of the allotment looked like in the late autumn.  All the matching trellis frames were found, so all we had to do was buy the wooden posts to support and presto! We have an elegant boundary to the next allotment.  The trellis is very useful and provides vertical storage – butcher hooks are handy for hanging hand garden tools, as well as bigger ones like the garden fork and spade.

This was before the strawberry patch was planted.  We also planted onion into the ‘Alberta’ bed.
