Wet Weather Winter Work!

Despite a rather grim morning, a cheerful team got lots done both outside and in the polytunnel! 

 Look at our lovely compost!

 A layer is put on to each raised bed to feed the soil.

 Collecting half-bricks...

 ...teamwork wheelbarrowing!

Half-bricks hold down the cut-open compost bags, which stop the goodness being washed out of the soil... we can grow great carrots like this!
