Six on Saturday: 23 February 2019

The promise of dry, warm weather – and another visit to the garden centre yesterday – meant I was out in the garden by 8:30.

My leeks were still clinging on, but their time was up.Β  A good haul – even if a couple of them do look more like spring onions.

Now you see them – now you don’t!

I’ve now cleared both raised beds – and raked out another bucket of stones and mortar left over from the building work last year – and covered both with cardboard to keep the weeds at bay (and the cats).

I’ve weighted them down with bottles of water.

As I plant on a grid system, I could plant through the cardboard,Β  cutting individual holes for established seedlings, or cut out larger squares for direct sowing.

  1. I love the creative way you have used the water bottles to weigh down the cardboard. While i like cats they are a pain in the butt when it comes to them using our veg patches as their personal toilet. Fortunately our local cat moved on as we have a resident mongoose in our garden.

    What do you plant to plant in your beds?
