Permaculture Fruit Garden

Lots of planting today before the Spring begins to merge into Summer, as often it does! Working in the fruit gardens by the Lughnasadh Garden is a joy as it affords me an opportunity to cast glances across at the new garden from quite different angles!

DSC06802Last year i grew lots of Blackcurrants from seed saved right here at Bealtaine.

I gave away many of these sturdy plants and so decided to plant the excess here in the new garden.

As you can see I am planting directly on top of the mulched area of cardboard and straw.

DSC06800I used compoost from the bins to give them the very best feed for the coming growing year. This is two years old and sweet smelling compoost.

DSC06801I also planted a Mulberry tree in the corner.

DSC06799Near the bottom of the path was planted the other Crab Apple.

Bees should certainly enjoy these new gardens!

I shall cardboard and straw mulch the area around this tree in the coming days so as to suppress all weeds.

DSC06803I added a shallow dish to the Lughnasadh Garden so Bees and Butterflies may drink water without drowning…it is such a sad sight to witness! The area to the right is simply cardboard and chippings from the garden shredder.

Elsewhere in the garden I have moved this home made wood shelter into place to store all the cut willow for use next winter.

DSC06816This gives a fantastic heat and is great for baking when I need higher temperatures in the stove.

DSC06812

This gives an over view of what I’ve done so far.

(Oops, there appears to be a rain drop on the lens!)

DSC06806

The tunnel is fast becoming my favourite place…I will set up a rocket stove nearby for making tea!
