New veggie patch

we finally started the much dreamed about new veggie patch today. It is right outside the big pen when it’ll get the water from the duck pond.

We are running two experiments here: straw bake gardening and huelgelkulture

For the first one I am starting super small with 4 bales in a squadre. In the Middlesbrough i have put old lucerne straw, llama manure and potting mix so I have a spot to plant into right away we’ll see if this  causes issues with the bale. 

the huglekulture is just the metal ring we had, filled with wattle and some pine off cuts. We’ve topped it with the lucerne straw and we’ll add poo soon too… Let’s see if it works 🙂 

Once we fix the swirl filter and get some gravel, the quaquaponics beds will also go here. One day we’ll build a huge hoop house around it all!
