    Default New project - The BIG one

    “lets get an allotment” she said! Not seen her down here much once the weed killing and digging finished...

    BUT! The first year on our small plot has lead to us taking on a new challenge

    The wife will be down to dig once the weedkiller has done it’s stuff.... in the meantime I’ve installed the IBC and added some pavers to finish off the half done path. We have to cultivate 50% in 6 months so doing the side with no bindweed (righthand side of photo), it will have squash, peas and beans as the small plot is well planted already (small plot goes after harvesting). The other side needs the rhubarb rescuing and the apple trees pruning, masses of strawberries have bindweed so they will be ripped out. In it for the long haul..... all but beat marestail on the last plot, so this is a walk in the park lol

    3 bin compost system is under construction and a site chosen for a greenhouse, hopefully I can find a 12x8 on FB going cheap.

    Good luck. Hope you have lots of fun and enjoyment out of it. Nice shed and a lovely little pond, by the look of it.

    Will your weedkiller kill the wildlife in the pond?
