We delivered 3 bags of compost to the plot today. Looking around at the beds, lots more compost and manure will be needed to bring most of the beds somewhat higher. I need to make sure I use the cheaper manure where bulk is particularly needed.

Bed 8 only needed one bag this year though. I think the blackbird had already kicked it about a bit when I went back after lunch. Two whole bulbs of garlic have gone it. They’re 4″ in from the sides and the cloves are 6″ apart, except at each end, where I’ve put 4 remaining little cloves into the final gaps.
