The Mandala Garden Takes Shape

Growth is in abundance in spring, and that includes the shaping up of our new mandala vegetable garden. The photo below is two weeks on from that in the last post. The paths have been laid with cardboard boxes to suppress the grass. Under the new beds to the right a few old moldy bales of hay have been spread over the grass, with a delivery of two cubic meters of soil on top. Our chooks are busy fertilising the last quarter that is to be planted out next month and spreading the new soil. Over their run we have suspended an old trampoline mat to provide shade. In the middle of the day they can be found snoozing and dust bathing under it. Potatoes that were planted in September are shooting for the sky. They literally grow several centimeters each day.
