I really should have taken a 'before and after' set of photos on this potato bed. Can you even make sense of what I've done here? I have lettuces and silverbeet going to seed in triffid like structures which blur the paths. I have also chopped back all the comfrey leaves and put them onto the soil to compost. Or rather Nick did that, under instruction. And then on top of the potato plants I've scattered about half a bale of hay. This helps block light from the growing potatoes and provides more hay to rot down and feed the plants.
Looks a bit like chaos.
