More work


By csarina


done on the sq ft garden. At the weekend we bought 3 bags of compost and 2 bags of farmyard manure. This morning oh emptied one of the bags of compost and one bag of manure onto a black plastic sheet and mixed them up, then put them onto the bed.

Its now started to be sectioned off, we are leaving one strip down the side for OH to put garlic in.

Compost and manure spread

Start of the dividers

Sections starting to be put into place.

Looking forward to some fresh veg next year. The climbing beans are about finished and I took the last courgette off this morning so that pot has also been emptied onto the sq ft bed. I also picked some salad leaves from the pot for supper tonight.

You made a good progress and it is starting to look attractive, even without the veggies. I plant lots of garlic too.

That's interesting - haven't seen one sectioned off like that before.

I've never seen any sectioned of either it looks quite neat, should get some good crops after all that preparation....

It is looking good. I take it the sections are just on the surface are they?
