The New Chook Food Shed Gets a Garden

Fruiting bushes, herbs and flowering plants (and strawberries) have gone in around the new Chook Food Shed. Other areas are being prepared for some new bare rooted fruit trees to be planted in winter and a couple of others moved from other areas of the garden.

I have found a temporary solution to the problem of all the pots of cuttings...a sunny spot near the water tank under the protection (from frost) of the Carob tree. More cuttings will be potted up next week.  I also found room for another small raised bed for some winter greens to be planted out. The seedling stand has been moved there too for more sunshine.

The next lot of propagation will be Seeds of Root crops  which can be sown on the 18th and 19th of May.
