I've been installing some raised herb beds next to the gîte kitchen recently. The idea is to take better control over the area generally, and to have some useful herbs within easy reach. There are some bunching onions there, and I'll move some Thyme and Chive plants into it as well. I usually grow some Thai Basil since you can't get it over here, that will go in there too, along with some annual Coriander, Parsley and Chervil.
It's a bright, crisp cold morning, so I have been taking advantage of the sunshine to fill up the second bed (on the far side of the picture) with compost from the compost heap. An inch-thick layer of commercial potting compost will then go on top. (This afternoon when the sun is on the beds, otherwise it will be too cold in the shade)
The tree that is just out of the picture on the right is a peach tree near the end of its life. I'll take it out and use the space for a third raised bed. Sometime.
