Working Bee — 18 July, 2010

Our fabulous tools were put to more good use today and a number of commercial beds were prepared and mulched, ready for new crops.

Fraser was responsible for our Education Spot again this month, this time about how to make Lime Sulphur and Bordeaux spray mixes. You can read that full report here.

A lot of maintenance was undertaken around the site, including tidying up and mulching in the orchard, some weeding and clearing up in the 6-bed rotation gardens and some whipper-snippering around the shed.
