Been very dry this year, but the Vegie patch is doing well.

 

I chose the Microshade Sleepers from Bunnings, look great and perfect for Garden\Kids play area's etc :smile: Termite resistant also

 

Made 2 straight up to get things going, based on a Hugelkulture principle, will be making 2 more shortly, Vegies are going well.

Re: Raised Garden Beds

@TheSaltyreefer Are they native bee houses at the front?

Hey, are the beds just full of mushroom compost or a mixture? BTW, they look great. Do you have an automatic watering system for them?

Hey mate, 

They are a hugelkulture principal so heaps of tree litter, branches etc, then topped with fresh goat poo and chicken poo and then the mushroom compost, works a treat :smile:

 

All automatic watering, the entire 32 fruit tree's on our property are on Auto water system :smile: and the 4 paddocks
