A bit of a catch up on how the patch is going now we are coming to the end of summer.. Many of the plants are doing well but we are still having few issues with nematodes & grasshopper attacks in the patch..
While cleaning out a few beds I found one that was extremely hydrophobic.. Below is a link that explains what hydrophobic soils are..
Was an easy fix that involved a bag of composted horse manure & a garden fork with the rain well & truly re hydrating the soil mix in the bed..
Hope to finish cleaning out the beds tomorrow & sowing some seeds later on in the day..

Hope all are well & happy..
Have a great one..
