Progress in the Permaculture Fruit and Vegetable Gardens at Bealtaine Cottage

There has been so much growth over recent weeks that I can hardly keep up…this is the busiest time of the year for sure.

Trees and bushes are merging together and forming dense walls of green.

The casting shade is already changing the nature of the earth underneath.

As I type, my hands have a healthy green hue to them from mowing the grass and pulling weeds to use as mulch around the fruit trees.

Everything that grows is food for the soil, building the depth and fertility, year on year.

There is no such thing as an unwanted plant…really, none!

Each year I say, “here’s another bumper crop of everything,” and this year is no exception!

So, as promised, here’s a walk around a small part of the productive gardens…
