The turf cutter hire has been arranged for this week, a bit sooner than I’d have liked as it’s hard to get the ground prepared with all this rain but due to work it was now or mid September which wouldn’t give me too much time to double dig the new beds before winter sets in.
This will be the site for my veg plot, I’ll have 5 beds which will be 3mx1.2m with grass paths around and in between.
I have a list of the veg I’d like to grow next year so once the hard labour is done I can sit down over winter with a pen and paper to make sure it’ll all fit!
Planting something was a nice change from the normal destruction that goes on in the garden at the moment.
Aside from the new beds I’ve got a few other bits and pieces I’d like to get done including improvements to the compost bin and setting up an outdoor sink for cleaning veg so I don’t keep filling the kitchen sink with soil!
