Garden of hearts

The garden was full of hearts today, on Gary's new signs 

and on this great looking box that he made, which will make a fantastic home for tomatoes or beans.

Sieved leaf mould was used to fill a container for this fig tree, which was grown from a small cutting last year.

The wood chip will help to retain moisture and suppress weed growth.

Another raised bed was taken on by a local resident today and we also tried our hands at building a collection area and transportation system to channel rain water into a storage container.  

It didn't quite work out so we'll be trying some other ideas.  If you've got any suggestions, they'd be very welcome :-)
