A day of signs

First step in making the Pictorial Meadows

First step in making the Pictorial Meadows

It was perfect weather for meadow preparation today, so a couple of Council staff came and sprayed the areas that will be Pictorial Meadow again this year.

We decided to close the garden for the rest of the day, to make sure we didn't walk the wet spray from one area to the next or across the park.

The garden will be open as usual tomorrow.

A very quick sign to explain that we have only buried logs and not mammals in the long hugelkulture mound

Some people have been asking about the strange hugelkultur raised bed 'mound' at the far side of the green area.  And especially how many bodies have been buried there.

So we made a quick sign - which might become a more understandable diagram one day.

It still needs more soil on it before planting.
