Raised rock bed update.

Friday, 18 May 12 Sunny 20°C / 68°F

Brassica block was weeded, mulched with lead mold, undesown with white clover and sprinkled with crushed egg shells to deter the slugs that have been nibbling. Removed the row cover.

Wedded the strawberries and mulched with straw. Need to fertilize. Will keep an eye out to see if I need row cover or netting to keep the animals out.

The cherry tree has little cherries! Looks great.

The blueberries are being ravaged by animals constantly digging. Need to top up the soil and undersow with something to keep them out.
