kitchen garden

Out, by the kitchen door, an expanse of black, weed surpressing plastic sheeting undulates like an oily Antarctic sea. This is where the Kitchen Garden will be created before next spring.

This area will contain raised beds, a small pond, Jill's potting shed and a log store.

Last night we visited the Nottinghamshire village of Norwell to see the gardens open through the Open Garden scheme.

These two photos were taken at the Old Bakehouse and give an idea of what may be achieved.

Mine, of course will be slightly out of true.


Couldn't help but add these clay martin nest sites which are presumably an homage to Dolly Parton....
