Plans for this growing season.

First proper post for a few months. The last couple of weekends have seen an improvement in the weather so I have made a start to the veggy plot. I now have 20 raised beds.

Shallots do'nt mind if its a wee bit cold.

This garlic was planted last October and should be ready about June. I have lots of veg started in small pots in the greenhouse including tomatoes, zuchini and peppers that will stay in there, and also some cabbage, beans, sweetcorn, fennel etc that will be transplanted into beds once they are established.

Other projects have included rebuilding an old Yamaha TT 600 Enduro motorcycle, converting a old race kart to an offroad buggy for my grandson, and converting a old caravan chassis to a trailer for transporting my logs etc, building a canoe rack to fit the trailer and lets not forget working 6 days and a couple of evenings a week. Sometimes it feels like there are not enough hours in a day.....

I'm hoping to get a garden going this year - I just wonder if I'll get the time with the new baby in the house etc...! Hope your garden grows good and green...

Well worth setting up a few of these raised beds Mungo. Very low maintainance, easy weeding etc.
Good luck with yours, and congratulations on the birth of the new wee one.

Well, my garden area is still being looked at, as in looking at the weeds growing. We'll see. :)

I've just joined an organic farmers' co-op, so my incentive for home-grown isn't as much. Well, maybe for a salsa garden, and basil to make pesto.

Your garden looks great! and, with all your other ambitions...phew, and I thought I was busy!
