Yahoo! The big guy built a new raised bed frame for a new salad / greens bed.
This used the solid wood planks we found in the rubbish on the street yesterday.
We still have to fill it with soil and manure. In the end this will be a semi-shaded plot as it sits at the base of the fig tree that’s on our front neighbour’s plot.
I’m thinking of planting with plants that often are quick to ‘bolt’ – like spinach. lettuce, pak choi and other greens – dill, coriander, etc.
The photos below show the greens patch (at the base of the rose arbor), and tonight’s harvest of pink and yellow stemmed swiss chard. Yum!
