Gravel large and small, called zahorra, got spread in front of the barn entrance. This is where the car will be parked, and the next load of firewood will get stacked along the wall.
There is a small shed space where we discovered a stone floor. Plans now are to use it as a tool shed and then root cellar, if and when we have veggies and beer to store.
Then we decided to wade in on the woodpile of scrap from the house and barn that´s been sitting in the pasture for going on 5 years now. A lot of it is turning to dust - perfect for hugelkultur beds. This will be put in the terraces. My only doubts are the nails they may have.
Some of the timbers seem reasonably sound and we´ll use them for raised beds, gates and plant support structures. I fancy a pergola.
