|Alice, Charlotte, Phil, Amelia and Friederike digging beds|
First we harvested the remaining tomatoes, both red and green (for chutney), pulled out all the plants, chopped them up and added them to our compost bins. Then we rolled up the woven black plastic mulch, marked out beds of 1.2m width, and dug them over to a spades' depth removing any living couch roots we found (not many, surprisingly). With a good team of volunteers this took two days.
|The beds all dug over, and trays of salads ready to plant.|
