Having a go.......

Well we've made a start.
Neither of us have a clue but we read the back of the packets and so we now have 4 lines of spring onions, lettuce, spinach and carrots, I thought I was being clever in putting them in my stride regulators/jump bumps/guttering, but then I could have done with them in a lesson I had last week! Silly me, so have Ian on the look out for some more!

We've also put in pots, sweet corn and runner beans and eventually we will get some tomatoes, hopefully the Beans and Corn will go in that patch in front of the green house, in between that and the first raised bed that you can see in the photo, we just have to get into a routine of watering them now!
....the lettuce and spinach have bounced up and I can just see little bits of colour coming up on the onions but nothing can been seen of the carrots, we decided not to use the whole packet and have divided them into 3 lots, so we don't have loads of everything at once, sounds a good idea, just have to see if we can remember!
