Nettles, Compost and Spuds…the food of love! Permaculture Picture Post.

Nettles on the compost heap…

Some are used for tea, some for mulching…makes a nutritious mulch around plants!

Lots of lovely straw from the hens garden, ready to put into tyres as a healthy base for growing spuds.

The spuds are placed on a bed of the used straw and covered with the same.

And as the spuds grow I will top them up with home-made compost…the more home-madey the better!
