Here's a photo of the nascent kitchen garden and its protective soil bank. We're hoping that the soil bank will provide sufficient bufferjng to stop the greenhouses ending up where they shouldn't as a result of the inevitable winter storms that come howling in from the south west, the other side of the bank.

I must apologise for the Australian style view! I have no idea of how to rotate it, I'm afraid.

That's great.
It puts the little experimental plot I have into scale! Now I have 5 beds, not just the two shown here.

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.
