Perminator - Trav's new favorite word.
That is exactly what we have been doing the last two days. We have started the transformation of our garden to a more permacuture inspired design.
  • Herb spiral is in place/planted
  • New key hole patches created
  • Paths started
  • Fruit trees moved and new lemon and lime trees planted
  • Strawberries fixed
  • Raspberries boxed over
  • Mulch, dirt and gravel wheelbarrowed
  • Seedlings planted

Oh and i am sore! But not quite as bad as last garden session...i am actually in love with it and i am batteling to be allowed to extend the garden into the paddock....i will win i am sure of it....
We still have a way to go but least its a great start and the weather has been good to us at the start of this spring.
Cardboard is the key. Since our ground is rubbish we are building on top of it. Boxes placed directly over ground, cow poo mulch, mushroom compost and bark over the top. It going to stop the weeds and break down to make lovely new earth. We will just keep mulching over it every year building up rather than digging down. Brilliant way to garden. Far better than trying to tackle the hard earth directly.

Poor Raspberries coped a hiding...but it was totally necessary.

I am starting to get excited for the Stitch n Bitch weekend. Let me know if anyone else would like to spend the weekend away with the ladies. Burnie show long weekend. Everyone's invited. I can pass your details along to the lady in the organising hat if your keen.
