    Last spring we dug seven permanent raised beds in the market garden, and such was the quality and value of the crops they produced (amazing black Tuscan kale, excellent broad beans, some big pumpkins, but disastrous onion transplants which dried out due to the lowered water table - a lesson learnt) that we have just […]
