Swales and carbon dump

Garden with new rows on contour and old rows marked by garlic and shallots.The last few weeks we have been reconfiguring our garden along contour lines, with swales.  We are making wider beds and filling the swales/paths with straw.  I need to order white duch clover seed to seed the remaining "lawn" along with creeping thyme and Roman chamomile.  We'll let the violets grow, too.  We also want to do beds along the fence line to plant with a diverse array of pollinator attractors.  I'm also going to put in some dye plants, like dyer's coreopsis, which is also a native.

We also built a carbon dump for cardboard, junk mail, etc.  Annie laid a couple of pallets against the fence with the slats horizontal and Dodger pulled another escape.
