As I dragged by post thumper out of the shed I cursed myself for creating more fencing with my new garden. I thought I'd pretty much finished it! Still it's only a small patch so it shouldn't take too long with rabbit wire.
|This home made tool brings a little bit of dread into my arms when I get it out!|
The patch is roughly 30m by 5m plus a 1m path down the one side. I still haven't made a planting plan yet so I'm not sure what's going where or how many plots I'm dividing it up into, I do like to make a plan and stick to it (my plan for my main veg garden can be found here) but by introducing trees that could potentially tie up a plot for two years, it makes planning a little harder.
|No need for a line with this fencing - just follow the ploughing|

|An hour or so work and I didn't knock any teeth out so it was a good afternoon!|
I'm definitely going to have a bean plot, a squash plot and maybe another one for roots plus I'm considering a patch for outside tomatoes and one for a small scale grain patch - I guess I'm going to have quite a few plots!
I keep referring to this as my "second garden" but I think it could do with a name - any suggestions? in fact I could do with a name for my main vegetable garden as well really!
