A quote by Seth Godin.
Over the past ten days the garden group could be excused for digging wells in the school garden. With the very kind donation of four x four metre scaffolding poles we were able to push on with the construction of the Jurassic Garden. Each pole has to be sunk in the ground one metre deep and that takes quite a lot of effort in the heavy soil which we have. In all four holes were required. On top of that each pole has to be slanted at ten degrees away from the upright. All in all a quite demanding operation which needs concentration and a lot of discipline.
|A metre deep hole is longer than your arm!|
|A good mix is essential|
|Filling the hole|
|In place- with the ten degree slant|
|Three poles in situ|
|Four poles in situ|
|All in place and tools tidied up|
|The limestone moved and area landscaped|
Elsewhere in the garden a Buff-tailed Bumblebee was seen flying just days after
|The stunned female Blackbird|
|Native Hellabore in flower|
|Corsican Hellabore in the greenhouse- in flower|
|Exquisite flowers- green but full of interest|
The Blackbirds have left the shallots alone which we planted last week. They are very good at pulling them up. Next to these the Rhubarb has been covered to force the stems for an early crop
|Our shallots have survived interest from Blackbirds|
The almost full moon suggests colder nights so things might slow a little in the garden. The next stage is to get the Pterodactyl template sorted. Interesting times ahead!
