So this is where we are at now – starting to look much better…

Pretty soon we want to put grey-water recycling into action.
This will involve diverting waste water from the bathroom and kitchen into the garden and then filtering it using sand and reed beds before sending it into our pond and other places around the garden.
Laura has done some ace sketches which I thought we should share with you…

After mulching we split into two groups – Claudia and Parastow broke up some strawberry plants, which had been rescued from somewhere else, into smaller pots so they will survive the winter with some water and love.
Next they planted some rainbow chard which was already looking fairly tasty as it had started life in the same place as the strawberries.
Meanwhile Laura and I began to clear out the bed at the rear of the garden which revelead a dead bed frame, a kids trike and scooter, three barbeques, a couple of dead chairs and numerous other bits of junk.
We also spent an age filling up the pond but it was empty again this morning so we obviously need to do a better job of blocking the plug hole!
