Homeacres No Dig Garden Photo Tour

It’s our annual open day at Charles Dowding’s no dig market garden Homeacres on Sunday September 1st, where he grows over £22,000 of veg in only 1/4 acre of no dig beds. Here are some photos of his abundant plot, showing the beauty of a productive edible garden.

Open Day at Charles Dowding’s garden, Homeacres

I am here surrounded by piles of baking recipe books and have written a very long shopping list, in preparation for the annual cake baking marathon later this week for our open day at Homeacres. All kinds of cakes, including vegan and gluten free, and there’s Charles gorgeous no dig garden to explore too.

New allotment plan and other experiments.

Every year I mulch my no dig allotment with an inch or two of composted manure or homemade compost, but this year I am trying something different!
