Hellooooo! Please excuse the stupid excitement but this is my first post and I've been literally chomping at the bit to get this underway.
So, a few months ago I decided to pull my finger out and go all Charlie Dimmock. Although I did have the foresight to actually wear a bra!
I simply couldn't wait to start growing and eating all my own lovely veggies, and with the ground frost still slightly lingering, turns out I was bang on time to start producing my own.
First things first...tackling those blummin weeds! Whilst poppies may look quite pretty, trust me, they are a pain in the rear!
With most of the weeds out of the way I lay down a couple of rolls of weed proof black matting. You can buy this in most garden centres and it's a God send. Guarantees no weeds will show their ugly faces for the next 5 years...result! There's also the added bonus that you don't need to use nasty chemicals either. Double thumbs up.
Next a trip to, (wait for it) Argos!!! Yup I just bought my first ever raised bed from there and I have to say, it's perfect. Only 1 metre squared so it hardly takes up any room. Will start with two and see how we get on.
