sundays in the garden: the new garden bed
I started off this afternoon's efforts by myself, but managed to tempt Sophie outside by saying it could be our shared garden bed. She was delighted to choose places for the plants - including lavender, echeveria, pigface and thyme - then cover them with fresh autumn leaves I'd raked from out the back this morning. The soil out the front is very poor, but by mulching with leaves and pea straw, they will break down in time and feed everything. And without a garden budget, we're just going to make do! I'd prefer to have a few plants die on me, than look at cape weed for the rest of my life!
