Our first permanent raised bed outside

In January we split the market garden into two equal halves, each of about one acre, with one half to be worked by tractor and one by hand (this latter to include the polytunnels, fruit cage, perennial beds, and permanent raised beds). The tractor-worked half will be ploughed soon, and the available parts of the other half will be converted to permanent raised beds - we built the first of these on Tuesday.
The bed marked out at one metre wide, covered with a layer of our own rough compost, and one path begun.

Sam, Mateo and Lillie digging out the paths, and piling the soil onto the compost to create a raised bed.
