The latest garden bed to be built is the Chook Food Garden. It is a simple construction of boards and another smaller piece of timber on the inside that the boards are screwed to. It is a rather deep garden that will take a fair bit of soil to fill. Luckily I still have another pile of dirt left from digging the Big Hole.
Once this bed is completed I will be landscaping around this area, laying a path and leveling the area behind the fence. The plants that will be planted around this garden need to be kid and chook prooffriendly and drought tolerant. During the summer months the luffas plants will be grown on the fence and left to die off during winter.
I’d love to hear any of your suggestions for this area, it is rather shady in some places but very dry as it is under the Oak Tree canopy. The area is only 1m wide.
Ideas so far: Lemon Grass, Mondo Grass or Lirope, Lavendar,
