Filling the beds

1000kg of Veggie Gold. A topsoil / manure / compost mix, courtesy of Compost Direct – well not courtesy – after parting with £170, and helping the delivery bloke get it off the lorry. Still hopefully this stuff is going to fuel my vegetables :).

As the ground is so soggy, no wheelbarrow was going to save me so I have been filling buckets and tipping it into the raised beds, with their liners stapled simply to the edges. I now have three filled beds – it only took forever – 3 more to go. If you want to help, let me know!

Pics today also include other peoples allotments, my netted gooseberries to stop sawfly or some such thing.
