One down six to go!

Bottom bed all finished and planted, This area is more of a zone 3 area with crops that don’t need as much care and have one big harvest rather than lots of little ones. I’ve started with broad beans on the bottom row snow peas in the middle and beetroot, kale, broccoli and spinach on the top rows.

We sheet mulched the raised bed and path with newspaper, then we covered the bed with straw and the paths with wood chips.

The paths are perfectly level with the bottom path being about two feet deep and filled with wood chips so that the path is about a foot lower than the raised bed.
