Friday catch up - weeding
It was all about the weeding today. Its a job that always needs doing, but we especially want the People's Garden to look good for next weeks Halloween fun day (Click picture for larger size):
So we weeded the borders (and saved the horseradish):
And the veg beds:
And there was still time to admire the flowers:
And even learn something about the Garden's soil texture - the picture below shows how the soil at the garden is a lot of sand (bottom) then silt, then clay, and (at the top) organic matter. It shows that although the soil is free draining, it doesn't have much nutrients... hence the tons of muck that are shovelled onto the site!!
