New to all this veggie growing and gardening. Our garden is all grass, compacted and very wet. I'm looking forward to getting stuck in, very hard at the moment as so wet. I've sown onions and garlic in first bed, strawberries and rhubarb in second, rasberries in a long row third bed covered for potatoes. Plan on having another 3-4 beds. I will pave and fence off. What you think. It might be best to have raised beds as its very very wet ground. I am adding in 6month old horse manure as I go.
I'm not too sure what to do with the rest of the garden. I don't want the lawn tho. An entertainment area would be nice I think. So much work ahead.

Well done - you have made a great start.

Raised beds are definitely easier to work with.

Good luck!

best of luck with your garden.even the best soil in Ireland is very wet now.but raised bed are much easier to weed
take it one step at a time.if you did everything all at once you'd have nothing more to do.
