First Bed Created ready for the Spring

My plan is to dig four large beds in the allotment. Each one of these wil be 7m x 4.5m. I have been slowly digging my way through the first bed removing all the grass and as many roots as possible by hand

I’m pleased to have got this done – 30 hours work over about 4 weeks. I can now plant some Broad Beans to overwinter, but I think I’m a bit late for anything else. Still it will be ready for the spring!

Three more of these to dig

  1. Great work prepping that plot. It’s not too late to plant garlic as well as broad beans. Have you resolved compost space for the grass/turf? If not, get hold of some builders bulk bags and fill those up – this time next year you should have lovely loam.
