Planting rainbow chard


Bea and Heather getting stuck in to the first bed last Friday.
We have begun to tame our permanent outdoor raised beds after a productive winter of kale, spring greens, and purple sprouting broccoli. As part of our crop rotation the beds will have no brassicas in them this year, so will mainly be filled with chard, bulb fennel, broad beans and peas (plus other miscellaneous crops).

1000 rainbow chard seedlings planted over the weekend (mainly thanks to Georgia and Hector) to fill 3 of the beds.

Today we sowed about 1000 Ambassador peas ready for planting out next month, all being well.
