Well, the project to remove the two old raised bed has been finished. The space where they stood is now a flat open space covered with 25mm shingle:-


So now I can get rid of that nasty blue Builder’s Bag. Hooray!


And of course the whole purpose of this project was to make a place to house big containers for growing things like potatoes, chillis and blueberries, so I have re-located all those pots I filled with soil the other day.


I have put 8 of the smaller pots into my two so-called “Seedling Greenhouses”, which will hopefully allow the soil in them to warm up a bit before planting-time. The greenhouses are weighted-down with bricks to stop them blowing away!

It’s too early to plant the potatoes just yet, but they are chitting away quite nicely on the windowsill in an unheated spare bedroom, and should be ready in about a month’s time.


This is “Charlotte” (my favourite), an ever-reliable and heavy-cropping Second Early variety.
