Permablitz #25 Deb's Place (Dec 2016)

Posted on December 22, 2016 at 12:40 AM

Who lives here - Deb and her dog Molly.

Aims of the blitz - Garden tidy up with an extensive list of things to do, thankfully there were choices and priorities and then have a celebratory lunch.

Project details - Cut down an old rusted water tank, excavate and convert rabbit 'patch' to vegetable garden and create hot compost pile.

Challenges faced - So many jobs on the list, which ones to do first. After a group discussion priorities were made to start on the vegetable garden bed.

Achieved on the day - We  weeded the existing overgrown vegetable patch and excavated an area to build raised garden beds on. Built a hot compost pile with the weeds, straw, chicken manure and grass clippings. Replanted the rhubarb into individual wicking tubs of cut down old 44 gallon drums. Cut down an old water tank and removed it from it's rotted stand.  Many hands make lighter work of lifting a tank, heavier than anticipated.
