It's a huge improvement on what was there before! But... While we have a crop of broad beans, peas and forage turnip, not to mention wheat that has germinated from the straw mulch, apart from sporadic watering, everything has had to make do with available soil fertility...i.e. Not much...

We also planted some perennials into the mix too; artichoke, gooseberry, raspberry.

And we should have planted much earlier in the rainy season...

So, I'm happy, but not over the moon with the results...
