Raised beds project under way.

Spent the weekend in the garden as opposed to fishing. Weather forecast was bad again for up north so stayed home. Managed to get four of the beds in position as you can see.

The two on the left have each one hundred onion sets. The nearest one has French yellow, the other a French red. If I can get some shallot sets I will do a bed for them also. We love shallots.

I plan to have eight of these beds and a few traditional furrows. Other veg we plan to grow are cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, some beans and peas, swedes and salad such as lettuce, spring onions, Pak Choi, beets and maybe try some exotics depending on the weather.

Last summer here in Scotland was a non event with average temps of about 10c. The previous summer saw average temps in the high 20's.
