The raised vegetable garden bed was also not a good idea. We just could not keep it moist no matter how much mulch we put on and the worms just didn't seem to like it at all. So it's going to good use as a compost bin.....a large compost bin!
I have been busy transplanting vegetables and herbs into the garden bed at the back of the house. It is only a temporary arrangement as this vegetable garden will be a chook pen at a later stage. We have plans for a potager garden on the southern side of the house. It will be large, very large, and I will have enough vegetables to feed a tribe but we can always take our excess fruit and vegetables to friends or Meals on Wheels who are always appreciative.
