Installing the raised beds

Time to install the beds. We bought the flat packs from Hambrooks in Titchfield and hubby and son assembled them - with hardly any swearing! The layout was based on the main paths being 70cm wide and parallel to the house.

Next comes the digging...

 Seeing as this bit of garden has been lawn for so long I thought it best to dig it over before adding new soil. I never thought I'd double dig, but it turns out it's not so bad after all. I even managed to persuade Joel (my 12 year old) to help on his inset day. And of course we were soon joined by a friendly robin and his friends.

The end of a  hard day digging, but then the idea of raised beds is that this should be once only event!
