most days i spend a few hours in the tunnel-garden. mostly weeding ,feeding and harvesting .this year i am hoping to get up to 5 dinners a week from the tunnel-garden .we are self-sufficient in lettuce,kale,chillies(we dry them) beans, spinach (perpetual spinach) cabbage and swede about 8-10 months.everything else is seasonal.
TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING IS BAD SO WE ONLY FREEZE FRENCH,AND BROAD BEANS

about soil conditioning and organic compost. A couple of years ago i got a few lorry loads of wood chips that were about to be dumped. I used most to supress weeds. i have one lorry load left.However last summer a lot of mares or horsetail made its way right up through this load. Does anybody know a way to compost this amount and make sure i don't wind up spreading this aggressive plant.
