Vegetable gardeners: What are you growing?
I ask about the front garden as we have a pretty big garden at the front, which is basically just one big area of lawn. The back garden is taken up with chickens and the kids toys, so there’s not a lot of space to grow veg left there. The front garden gats very little use, apart from growing some rosemary.
I was thinking of an edible hedge around the outside – various fruit bushes.Posted 8 years ago

I’d recommend netting if you do this which may spoil the aesthetic somewhat. We didn’t in our 1st year and ended up with about 5 raspberries and 15 red currants whilst the pigeons and assorted other wild birds got fat
Oh, if you want edible flowers there is borage (good with pimms) and nastursions (sorry about the spelling, not sure if that’s right?) which are great in salads.Posted 8 years ago
Ours are two scaffold boards deep, with part of that being sunk into the ground. The insides were lined with waterproof membrane to help prolong the life and to make sure there were less nasties leaching into the soil

To fill – this four took a couple of tons of decent topsoil liberally mixed with well rotted manure and garden compost.Posted 8 years agotinker-belleMember
After last years bumper crop of chard, I will only be planting a very small number of plants rather than 3 rows of the stuff at one point had half a fridge full of the stuff.

Have found that using various pots (including and old butlers sink) are great for expanding the space I have to grow my veggies.Posted 8 years ago
