Exterior - Ghetto Garden revival

Dubbed the Ghetto Garden, a friend and I spent 4 hours reviving this garden for her daughter and their flatmates in their first flat. All they have to do now is water it!!
before: old tomato plants, weeds, sticks and poor soil but plenty of parsley plants!
During: found a stash of bricks for stepping stones, dug in Dynamic Lifter manure and water saving pellets.
After: Lettuce, rocket, bok choy, beetroot, thyme, oregano, basil, lemon verbena, leeks, silver beet, mizuna and calendula all mulched into their happy new home with pea straw.
During: planting vegetables and herbs
Before: view to house
During: pepper plants from old garden will love the new soil and mulch.
After.... will post new shots of garden in a month or so to see how it grows ...mmmmm
