I've been pondering again over the garden. Out loud to Mike who had the good sense to listen deeply & more importantly agree.
It's very important to me to be able to nip out & gather something for dinner. I'm also conscious of the need for it to be time effective.
The current veg bed was a mistake, to turn the veg garden into a time effective operation I really do need separate veg beds. It would make it a whole lot easier to keep on top of.
I've been going over in my mind about what I want to grow & to be honest two small beds isn't going to cut it.
Sweetcorn & courgettes
A few cabbages & broccoli
& really a fifth bed because well you know garlic, Florence fennel & veg I could very well buy but want to have a dabble at growing my own
Potatoes & carrots will still be grown in pots.
So all of this has given Mike something to think about, whether it happens this year we shall see but it's still nice to plan
