Great stuff Tim! Have you got a "turver" or are you using fork and spade? And how did your Dirt Doctor seminars go this weekend? Heard the Wanaka Urban Eden workshops were a real hit!

just completed six new mounds at my place, six to go. finally all the compost I have been building over the past three years is being used to create in ground gardens. goodbye raised beds, hello workable earth. my place has 5-10cm of top soil at the most, directly on glacial moraine. great for minerals, not so good for soil humus. now looking forward to the next plantings, yeehaa.

yes Harry, it's pretty drab here in NZ :) Actually, taking photos of gardens can be surprisingly difficult. This was taken with a colour accent to make the mounds clearer. and yes Hester, it's mind boggling to think that some people actually buy soil! Somewhere along the line we have been tricked into thinking that we need to buy in a whole lot of stuff to create a garden, raised beds, top soil, compost, mulch, when it's all right there under our noses.

Love seeing gardens in the GROUND. Just proves we can actually use the soil we have.

You need to get a little more sun. You look awfully "pale" in this photo and your shirt, jeans and dirt are VERY gray.

Well there you go! It's a LOVELY garden, and now a good place to see Dirt Doctor bio intensive techniques in action
