Time for another session of redesigning at Alice Park community garden.

Couple of tasks today. First up, to level off a 5x1 metre patch of ground where a cold frame is going to go.

If you don’t know what a cold frame is… that’s why we go along to gardening tasks, to learn stuff like this 🤣

The area needs to be level, at least within itself. It wasn’t far off to begin with, so mostly just needed a little scalping here and there and a bit of soil redistribution.

A local robin was flitting around and paying big interest in our levelling. We worked out why after digging up a worm - Mrs robin was straight on it! Circle of GoodGym life!!

After a tea break we set out measuring a line where a semi-circular path is going to go. If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll know that we already spent a few sessions working on a similar path - and the idea is to mirror that one, so as to make a pleasing symmetrical space for passing photo-drones and other garden users.

Watch this space for more on that, I’m sure…
