Vegetable Garden Chapter 1

Last year, rather late into the growing season I planted a few things, lettuce, spring onions, radishes and spinach. They grew well in their tubs, so this year I am feeling a little more ambitious and want to plant a full veg garden.

The proposed site

The space on the other side of the creek gets great sun and is out of the way. The ground is rocky so digging it up will be hellish. I plan to rake up the leave, skim the grass off the top loosen the soil and remove the big rocks. As this is the country side and there are lots of wild animals constantly foraging I’m going to fence in it. I plan to grow things in raised beds and will add lots of top soil to achieve that.

Wish me luck, I’m already feeling overwhelmed and the potatoes and parsnips should be in the ground now! Yikes
