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.

    Lynn, I thoroughly enjoyed reading through your blog! We got into alpacas from our son learning how to weave. I decided I wanted to learn to spin & weave so I can help him so here we are now with 10 fiber boys. There’s a fiber festival in Vicksburg, MS May 31-June1. I’ll be there and hoping to learn a lot. check it out. http://www.msff.net

    Thanks Sheryl, I got a spinning wheel in November and just finished a pair of socks with the first ball of yarn that is not “art yarn” I also did a course on rigid heddle weaving, I am going to try a floor loom before I decide which to buy.

    Will have a look at that show
