Yesterday we ordered the wood for two new raised vegetable beds. They said they would deliver it shortly and we happened to follow the delivery guy home. One will be 8’ x 2’ x 16”. The other 5’ x 2’ x 16”. I will only half fill them this year as both will sit on soil, which will be incorporated into items ordered today.
Today we went to buy soil, compost, manure and blood, fish and bone, to get one of them started. That will be delivered over the weekend. I also bought 5 more tomato plants and a courgette. Next year, I will sow them myself as per normal, but being on holiday, couldn’t do it. We hope to have the larger bed operational by next weekend.
What I did notice was the rise by £1 per bag of a certain compost, from just two days ago!
Sunny day today but with a very cool strong northerly wind:(
