Chook Palace
The girls hardly know themselves with this old shade house having been turned into the palace. Big Ears survived from the old house, and the two new chooks Beaker and Xena.

This bed already contains the golden shallots and I will also be planting it with garlic.

The new garden beds made from old potato boxes, very cheap, I will cover the bottom with newspaper and then fill them using the no dig method, but this time I am going to try using top soil as oppoised to compost as it is a quarter of the price $10 a metre

There already was an exsisting hazel tree in the garden but although they produce male and female flowers, they are self incompatible, so need a second tree the fertalize the flowers, I bought a second one a Global Greening in Batesford and put it in the ground. Behind it I will plant globe artichokes.

Apricot tree under a peach tree.

Well things have calmed down a bit so I have started work on the garden. The other weekend I planted my trees in the ground.
