After my post about about having to divide the veg patch to conquer it I thought I'd give you all an update an to say I followed the general consensus to make it into beds.

I've done this with more slabs. I brought new ones and then I've been given another 15 second hand since, with more to hopefully follow (be good for the new greenhouse floor as well when I get it up).

This has meant that I've now divided the veg garden into 16 different beds to work on a 6 year rotation (more about that in another post). One is already given over to herbs and another will probably be left as a sandpit/toy playing area bed for the children. For once it really feels as though I might be able to get on top of the garden this year and not loose the war to the weeds (although the soft fruit garden is another matter!).
I also like the look of it now it's all divided up, it looks like a backbone with ribs from a distance.
How is everyone else coping with the weeds this year? It seems we're having to fight the war a couple of months earlier this year in the UK.
