I have now put the raised bed into the ground, it went in pretty easy, only moving the odd few over sized stones.
And it is looking good just need to clear all the rubble, glass and other debris to make it safe now, so a labour intensive job.
The sieving is going well though as I am about half way through, this is the amount of dirt I have cleared –
The bag is almost full to the brim, should be done by the weekend though. I’m only going down about a spade width, that should be more than plenty when full.
Also I only had one problem with the raised bed, the board is slightly twisted, so it pulled the screw out, nothing major though.
Tomorrow I will be testing out my new seeds using the dirt from the ground and bag, to see how it will grow.
To me the love for gardening probably started out from my grandparents. Both my parents see gardening as a pain so I didn’t get my love for it off them. My grandfather used to have his own allotments but due to him getting older, has had to give it up and grows mainly in the garden. Here are a few pictures from the garden –
He has gone a little bit tomatoe and runner bean mad, but as he says “only grow what you eat”. The sunflowers are all my grandmothers, she is the flower grower of them both.
I hope you have enjoyed this post on my grandparents garden.
Today I got out into the garden much earlier since I won’t be able to this evening. I used some connectors and screwed the wood together, I didn’t get a chance to screw it on to the bed though as the rain came.
I am very impressed with how it is looking though and can’t wait to put it in.
