The potager takes form

We have been working on the food growing part of the garden in front of the house - creating a mixture of hugulbeds, sheet mulches, wood chip and broken slate paths:

Three layers of cardboard are put down after cutting
the vegetation in preparation for creating
a bed for planting
The bed after adding layers of manure,
hay, leaves and finally straw
A finished hugulbed (a trench
is dug and filled with rotting logs
followed by soil and any
compostable material like grass
cuttings, leaves, manure, hay
and straw)
Curved hugulbeds with woodchip paths

Litte stone steps where there
are changes in levels
Round paths dug out
