Behind the old shed…

Whilst in Australia Nina and I also tackled the area behind the shed that had become very overgrown.  There were already banana trees there but lots of brambles and competing plants.  We slashed it all except the trees and then collected huge amounts of cardboard.  We laid the cardboard first putting down lots of nitrogen-rich material.  Once it was covered we mulched with straw and planted various plants into it.  Around the edges we planted comfrey and vertiver grass to stop encroaching bramble.  We then planted many more plants including pigeon pea, coco yam, cassava and sweet potatoes.  Pictures here…
