So, in my quest to grow my own vegetables, a little creativity is needed as the house we are in atm has two disadvantages:
- The garden is small.
- It’s fully landscaped leaving little room for our veggie friends.
Actually, there is a third disadvantage. Mr EN thinks that I don’t have enough time to scratch my skinny arse let alone build raised beds and grow food. He also likes the current low maintenance aspect of it.
However, I am very
stubborn persuasive and so currently have this sat in the back garden :
The lovely farmer where I keep my ponies has said that I can have as many of these as I like, so the plan is on Saturday I’m going to start turning them into raised beds. Now, the last time I did woodwork was at school, so this is unlikely to be a quick, or pretty process, but I’m hoping it will be worth the effort. I am also going to be using some of it to make a bird box as we’re trying to encourage more wildlife into the garden and youngest daughter is very keen to be involved in this 🙂
