It has been a busy time in the garden since the Funpalace:
We have been focusing on making a new living willow circle structure - now almost complete, apart from the living willow. We need to wait until about December to plant the willow, when it has lost its leaves and can be moved. We hope to have enough in a local allotment. So far, we have made three hazel-pole arches with hazel poles between.
We have also planned for some fruit trees, which we will order soon and plant from December.
We have planted up two new beds by the water tower - one for clematis and a shadier one.
And the leaves are falling fast, which meant lots of moving of two-year old leaf mould to make way for the new season's harvest.
It is also a time of year for 'taking down'... including climbing beans, courgettes and rhubarb. But this makes space for mulching and moving and re-thinking.
