We have been plotting and scheming for a while about what to do with the front garden, previously an ugly useless bit of concrete. Seemed about time to make something so Dean came over and we played with tools and heavy stuff to make a raised bed…

We now have raspberries, tomatoes, borage, rocket, lettuce, marigolds, radishes and loads of wild mint and lemon balm.
