The last of the January projects was to move and re-establish our vegetable garden so that they are in raised beds, away from the larger trees and easier to water. We have made a great start, but I’m not sure we’ll be planting the larger beds before February.
So far we have one finished raised bed, the base of the second raised bed (we’ll have to let this settle on its bed), and four dual tyre planters. The two tyre planters between the beds have already been reserved for rhubarb and strawberries.

We are already running two compost bins, the worm farm could help with a quicker composting process with some of the green waste.

If your going to have a vegetable patch, you are going to want some chickens. In fact the younger members of the mob have been hasling me to get chickens for five or more years.
