Soil And Compost Arrives

Things are getting quite exciting. Today the soil and the compost arrived for the raised gardens. All that is needed now is to fill the boxes with the soil and compost and then the planting can begin.

Raised Gardens Go Up

Over the previous couple of weeks the boys have armed themselves with hammers and headed down to the garden area to put together the framework for the raised gardens.  Today we worked with Graeme, our caretaker, to erect the raised gardens.  We had to make sure they were square before we could peg them.  Once pegged we nailed the garden boxes to the pegs so that when we filled them with soil they would not move.
