And for my next trick...


That's the SW bed, home of carrots & onions this year. Most of the earth is what was taken off the southern edge of the concrete structure, which had been an earth path, proving to be a concrete path beneath. Anyway, earth that's not been gardened in a long time. The rest is earth hacked out from what was the floor of a nettle jungle. Probably high in nitrogen then. So it's been hacked-at with the hoe, and thrown over with the spade, so it just needs levelling with the rake (and some ingenious footwork on the planting plank), and I can get it planted out, (albeit rather late) with onions, carrots, & parsnips.
