No dig bed
The Rosella seems to have survived me falling on it and breaking half its branches partly off when I was putting in a stake because the wind blew it over. Its started flowering now - should soon see the "fruit" you can make cordial or jam with though might not have enough at once (only 2 flowers open at a time) to make much.
The corn male pollen is attracting lots of bees but there are only 6 cobs on 14 stalks and they look tiny so obviously not enough compost (thin layer) to really get them growing.
