HI Shayne, post a few a pics for those of us who are land challenged and suffering from tunnel envy ! big time !!


Well at the moment I'm at clean and re do the beds and just started sowing again. I will post a few more as the time goes on. The cleaning out of the goat and chicken shed makes a great base for good soil as it is sawdust and rots handy.

Also did the bug kill and any flies etc. Salted the corners and under mats for snail eggs. Hoping for a bit of sun at the weekend. Even since these pix were taken the elephant garlic and red garlic are showing sprout. In between the rows we will sow radish the odd lettuce, a single gherkin plant. Have watercress down and bean plants starting to grow for outdoors.

later I will show a close up of the areas where last years toms spilt seed and scores more are now growing, will be potted on and sold.
