The garden is probably at the only stage in the year where it looks remotely organised.
Beds are laid out, some of last years crops are still in the ground to be harvested and new ones are nearly ready to be planted.
As I've got quite a large number of beds laid out this year, I've decided to make sure they're numbered. That way I can easily keep records in my diary of what is planted where and I can also say to my wife that she can pick veg from ## bed if I'm not cooking that night.
I made the number tags from some off cuts of 6mm (1/4") ply, I painted the numbers on with some black oil based paint and then coated both sides of the tags with boiled linseed oil to give them a bit of protection from the weather.
I then went and tied these round the garden and realised that the planting plan I'd already drawn up (on the computer luckily) was the wrong way round so needed changing, that's why I've not shared it with you all yet!
The girls and I managed to plant some potatoes today as well, it's a nice first early variety called rocket which will be good with a salad, I know it's still early but I plan to use one of my hooped frames covered with plastic to make a mini polytunnel. Only one bed planted with them so far - bed 13 - unlucky for some!
Who else numbers their veg beds like this?
Anyone else got their spuds in yet?
