First good days work this year

A good days work. We got the rest of the potato bed manured and dog over.

I opened up last years compost bed, it's fabulous. Good crumbly rich and dark.

I also started to repair and extend on of the raised beds. we don't have any spare soil to fill the beds and definitely did not want to pay for any! Here's my solution.
After digging a trench for the pallet to for the raised beds I dug two foot of top from within the bed. It's wasted at the bottom of the bed. I then fill the bottom half of the bed with rough uncomposted garden material. This then had a layer of newly composting material (several months old. Then a layer of manure and top soil. It was then finished with the good compost made last year.
