Over the years.....

In the beginning - March 2009 ~
Over the years this little farm has changed considerably. When we first moved here there were no raised beds, no Chicken World and definitely no accommodation or fences for animals. No where to plant veggies....in fact all we had was rough land, grass and piles and piles of stones and overgrown areas. The back of the house was stone and shingle and the side was cracked paving stones.

March 2010 - with the first raised beds in place and the site of the Kitchen Garden flooded

We have worked our way around adding things as we have needed them, removing a few things we didn't (although some we tried to use....remember the swing and climbing frame bean support, it worked well but was then donated to our landlords visiting children).

Now all our raised beds are in place and we are making full use of them to keep ourselves and the animals supplied with fresh veggies. I only have a couple more to weed and rake through then they are ready for planting. The first round of seeds are in and growing away in the polytunnel ready for transplating into the beds once the soil has warmed through enough.

Of course it helps that there are so many willing helpers around when they see you armed with a spade. A lot of worms bit the dust when Lovely Hubby turned that bed over on Sunday!!
