The previously cleared bed now has 84 leek transplants (grown from seed by my Lovely Mum) and 2 rows of beetroot seeds. At this late stage I might just get enough baby beets to pickle!
The weeds were bagged up (another 5 rubble sacks) and taken to our recycling centre. After dumping them into the appropriate skip we filled up the empty sacks with the free compost that gets made from garden (and food) waste in my council's super duper hot compost system! It's good stuff and did I mention that it's FREE?!!!
We took it back to the plot and promptly filled a new raised bed. £20 from B&Q!! (Verve Large Raised Bed Kit 0.96m) Dead easy to put together! Untreated wood but I'll probably stain the outside to help preserve it. For £20 it's a great deal. In fact I bought 2 more!! 😲😄
I wouldn't have made so much progress without help. I'm still exhausted after doing even a wee bit of physical work so need to keep pacing myself. It's a marathon not a sprint! 🏃
