And now the hard work starts - fighting the wildlife! The earthwork in the last picture is made from all the turf removed from the new vegetable garden and will eventually form a backdrop to either a pond or bog garden. Unfortunately the Scottish broom which I have carefully nurtured for a year and which is planted on the top of the bank has already been nibbled at! How many of the hundreds of trees we've planted survive remains to be seen!
Tomorrow a digger arrives to level some ground for the polytunnel and create paths.
