My Very First Vegetable Patch
Vegetable Garden Preparation
I have become the proud owner of my own vegetable allotment, not only that but it is at the yard where I keep my horse.
I am good friends with the owners and in passing comment one day I had said about allotments and growing vegetables then, before I knew it, I was told that I was allowed one there and that they would help.
For the last few days I have worked hard with marking out the area where I will plant vegetables, digging weeds, clearing the ground of stones and then finally today I had it rotavated by a friend.
Whilst I am sat here typing this out the yard owner is busy fencing the area for me so that are chickens can't destroy the hard work that has been put in so far preparing the vegetable beds.
Tomorrow I shall be adding manure, which there is plenty of and free and then its sorting the flower beds out the front of it.
For someone who is only 36 and thought that this sort of thing was for the older person, I was wrong.
I can't wait for it to be finished and up and running. My first crop is potatoes too, which I can't wait to spring up and flower.
I have great plans for my vegetable garden and really want to have a go at growing everything and anything :)
