    More wood in there than I would prefer - I'd definitely try composting it down for about 6 months before using it.
    Snoop Puss and Selymbria like this.

    Ok - put the chicken bed into compost bin.

    This year I started my seeds a month early and first time growing potatoes.

    I sow tomatoe, pepper, onion, leek, cucumber, courgette.

    How many seed potatoes have you got? And are you hoping to get them all in one bed? Remember, first earlies need to be 30 cm apart and later ones further still, maybe 40 cm or so in rows that are 60 cm apart. Or are you chitting potatoes for friends too?
    Note to self: Getting too old not to have a life.
