SW Bed Almost Ready


And there it is. Compare how it looked a couple of days ago. I'm relieved about this bed because there seemed to be too much earth in it when it was all heaps, but now that it's leveled it's hunky dory. I'm going to leave it a couple of days, let the magpies and robins have a good old scratch around in it for leatherjackets and what not. Then I'll give it another rake, maybe a bit of riddling, and then plant it with carrots, parsnips and marigolds. I suppose this is how no-dig is going to be: heavy duty work with the rake?
