First day of spring!

We had a great start today, setting the first plots of the garden at Foundation House.
Here is Nick expertly cutting away the first turf with a Chillington Hoe.

                                          The wood for the beds arrives, thanks to Biff.

The magnificent dozen! 

That's Jackie in the deckchair on supervisory duties, after a hard dig of the nearby mulch pit.

Nearly finished , the three beds furthest left with freshly planted raspberry canes and rhubarb crowns.
In the centre the raised beds filled with topsoil from the nearby nettle patch all ready for planting. To the right the we've laid out cardboard on the de turfed plots for further fruit planting.

Thanks to everyone that helped to bring about such a fantastic transformation in just a few hours. We will be at the Earth Hour Gig at the British Legion in Louth this Saturday 27th, hoping to raise a bit of cash to buy posts and mesh to temporarily rabbit proof the raised beds. See you there!
