Starting From The Begining.

My Crop Of Onion's In My Small Veg Patch In The 'Garden'
I live near Penzance in Cornwall.
You might think lucky you but...
We do get extremes of weather, lots of salt ladden winds and rain....
And more rain.
Any way I have a field at the bottom of my garden which over looks Mounts Bay and I have decided to 'make' a vegetable garden.
At the moment it is a 'field' so where do I start? That's where I hope you all will come in.
My plan is to start off by marking out three 10' x 6' beds and apply 'Roundup'!!! not very organic I know but I must get rid of the grass and weeds quickly if I'm to do any planting this year!
Then the plan is to find, beg or borrow a rotovator, preferably with a man attached - and 'dig' over the patches.
We might then be ready to start?
In the mean time I can pour over seed catalogues and dream - at least until this cold weather has gone.
