Decided that the site I had previously chosen for my new vegetable patch just wasn’t going to work. Everything I read said most crops need a minimum of six hours direct light and this plot only just achieved it. Moving the gravel and clearing the ground beneath was going to be a big job and one I would have totally resented if my broadbeans didn’t grow. Time for a change of plans.
One short call to my landlord later and we were digging up the front garden instead.
The plot is one metre wide and nine metres long. Planting starts later in the week after I have erected a chicken wire fence to protect my seedlings from a certain black devil.
Shall post my crop plans soon.
