The bed had been a bit neglected for a while and it needed a lot of preparation work.
I had to use a mattock and spade to loosen the soil, which was like rock. The excavated soil then had to be sieved to remove the stones.
Then a stone and wood structure was added to compartmentalise the bed.
Finally. plants could be planted. At the same time, after similar strenuous preparations, I replanted the rest of the bed. Altogether, it took about a fortnight to complete the job.
This spring, it's doing OK, so far. Another one to tick off my bucket list.
