One down, five...six more to go. I can see the salad bed here this year. Ok, we did leave Emily's catnip down at the far end. Maybe one tomato, only a few steps from DH's bench.
This bed hosted flowers, herbs and a spare vegetable or two these past years. The herbs were getting too comfortable and some grass & weeds were moving in with the flowers.
So, a good clean out was in order. It had rained the night before, but it wasn't too muddy. Brought over some decomposing leaves from another bed and turned them over into the soil. Then added another sprinkling of leaves. Now the worms can do the work for a few months.
This time of year, it is difficult to remember the garden beds looking like this post (photos taken from the bench).
