The Great Wall of Shelton

Leave a comment

After several weeks of reconstruction, the final stone for the new Harvest Kitchen Garden stone wall was set in place yesterday morning (shown with Farmer Jones and Farmer Allyson).  The new wall will help with drainage, reduce soil erosion, and improve aesthetics on the farm.   Now the fun part begins, as we design the bottom half of the garden!

This autumn a series of cold-frames (for growing winter crops), compost bins, worm bins, and edible perennials will be built and planted along the wall.  Check back in a few months as we post the updates!
