It’s back-breaking work
digging new ground for planting,
but so rewarding.

Being unable to go abroad for our usual spring trip and in view of the current circumstances we are extending our small vegetable patch this year. Looking forward to more fresh produce!

    Good luck with that 🙂
    I’m trying to think of where I can plant peas… with some kind of trellis to make it easier for picking.

      Yes, and runner beans I hope to do. A friend of mine grew them up strings attached to the top of a fence.

        We’ve built some trellises for runner beans and climbing cucumbers. I hope they work.

        My hubby is an engineer so has built a very sturdy frame out of angle iron, with strings for the beans to climb. I was going to add a picture but don’t know how to do it in this reply!

    We’ve just finished building our first ever veg patch – https://myhomefarm.co.uk/installing-the-gate-on-sloping-land – and we’re excited to get growing, harvesting and eating our produce. It was a lot of digging and wheelbarrowing. Exhausting.

    We’re complete newbies, so we’re reading avariciously to limit silly mistakes in our first season.

      Good luck to you. I’m sure all will be fine. We haven’t done much in recent years as we are usually away for most of the spring. This year is somewhat different!
