    My hat off to you sire!

    Did a little bit over the plots today, been feeling unwell the last couple of weeks but the fresh air really helps clear my head

    Upon arrival I feared the ground would be frozen due to the weather of late and the dusting of snow

    Dug 3 of the 15 raised beds, which will all get properly aligned and leveled when I have dug them all

    Hopefully next week I will be fighting fit again so I can crack on

    No new pictures today as I have only dug another couple of beds....how can an area 1800 x 900 mm fill a wheelbarrow with roots, shoots and weeds?

    So on plot 54 I have 15 beds in the middle third all 1800 x 900, I grow all the traditional crops on plot 51 (next door) but want to try a few unusual veggies on plot 51.....any ideas?

    Not much to show really, but I have had a re-think. I am now going to have five 5400x900mm beds and five 900x900mm beds in the middle third.

    I have completed one of the 5400mm beds, ignore the white wood in the picture, just holding things in place till I drive some more rods in.
