Making a bed.

Before.

Spent a half hour at the plot this morning putting in a new bed and doing a bit of digging. When I arrived I scared off a male pheasant from a neighbouring plot and what I think were four grouse from a plot further down the hill. The grouse were happily feeding away until they saw me coming and then flew off to the cover of long grass in a nearby field. I will try to sneak up on them next time and get some photos.

I had just about finished filling the new raised bed with a mixture of manure, compost and soil when it started to rain. That’s why the pic below is so shaky – I was in a hurry to get going after yesterday’s deluge. I have two more beds to lay this week and then I can start planting my garlic and onion sets.

After…  Spot the difference?
