De Dah!...Raised Beds. Trousers Covered in Kisses.X
Having started the Bored Beans off from seed in a polybag next to the Rayburn, then transplanted them into small pots in the warmth of the Conservatory, then chucked them out into the cold 'Mini-Me' Greenhouse, then turfed them out from there into the open ground, with empty pop bottle cloches over them at night, until finally, they're big enough and ugly enough now to stand on their own two feet without any TLC, they're less sappy for the slugs to nibble at, and hopefully, fully hardened off now.
THIS is infinitely better: Proper photos of proper raised beds, and I've started to section them into workable squares, in order to aid my elusive Holy Grail of a Successional Sowing Technique(!) (see every seasoned grower nod their head wisely?!)
I can't profess to have tried it before, but it seems to make sense to me on a sensible growing level, so I'll give it a shot. I do sprinkle weathered soot into my Potato trenches for the same reason.
For now, I am going to leave you to get on with your own week, but I'd just like to say that I had a lovely telephone conversation with my friend Gloria today, after many weeks of us both just getting our heads down and getting on with things, and I'm going to see what she's done on her allotment next week, and then she's coming to The Funny Farm to take some serious Seed Sowing Photos after that.
Thank you to each and every one of you who follow my blog, and particularly, to you very new peeps that have joined the mad house! Bless you.X
