Creating a veg garden

The riding ring (oval) will make a great veg garden. It’s enclosed and, most importantly, it’s about the only flat piece of land on the property. As we don’t plan to have a horse. It makes sense to utilise the space for something useful. It could always be returned to it’s former use if required.

Right in the centre is an open sided shelter with a good roof. I plan to use one half as a chicken coop and the other half as a garden shed/store/potting area. Raised beds will provide the growing space.

I took the first steps today. We now have two raised beds built and I’m in the process of filling them from the alpaca poop compost heap. It looks really good. Just to be sure, I’ll take a sample down to the agricultural extension office to have it analysed.
