A quote from Gilbert Chesterton.
We start with some dramatic pictures of the sunset over the school garden this weekend. No artist can create such magnificence. Nature will win every time!
Wonderful stuff and good for the soul!
Back to the garden. At the end of the week ten tons of topsoil were delivered to make good the main growing beds and profile the planting areas around the Jurassic Garden. The old tired soil was removed from the salad and vegetable beds and wheel-barrowed down to the Jurassic area and a barrow load of fresh top soil was taken back. No-one was allowed to be seen with an empty wheelbarrow!
The arrival of ten tons of fresh topsoil
|A busy scene in the garden on Saturday|
|The replenished salad bed|
|Digging out the old soil|
|Ready for planting next Spring|
The last of the vegetables were dug up- carrots and a few small turnips. They will not be wasted! Half the makings of a good stew
|The pile of soil soon started to disappear|
|Redefining the main planting area with more interest|
Finally the details for the carol service. It will be held 17.00 hrs on Saturday December 6th in the School Garden. Do join us. Bring a torch and a warm coat and a seat if you wish. The school choir will once again delight us and the garden will be flood light. If wet weather prevails it will be held in the School Hall
This next week more stone will be delivered to finish off the base layers of the paths around the Jurassic area. It will then remain for just the top of the paths to be made good with a finer aggregate and then we must wait until next Spring when we can start planting up. Exciting times are ahead!!
