Working hard again

Planting up a new asparagus bed - we had dug out the clinker and raised the sides so we hope we have sufficient root run. The plants were raised from seed this year so we won't get a crop for a couple of years or so. We like the ferns though and it is an inexpensive way to go.

We seem to have spent a lot of time just eating cake in the garden recently. On Sunday, we got back to doing some gardening in the mild but not too hot weather. Lots of people knuckling down.

Even Bella the dog showed (a bit too much) interest in gardening the raised beds (here she is behaving herself). The soil level has dropped a lot in the beds over the summer (we used a permaculture technique of layers that rot down at different rates) so we will soon need to clear them all out and top them up over winter.
