How to fill a raised bed

Posted: Yesterday at 20:20

These are my beds in my last house.  

I only have one now, but I didn't put any membrane down I just filled it with 

any decent soil I could lay my hands on and then for the last 12-18 ins I bought 

top soil from a builders yard.   Add compost as you wish for salad crops.  Very little weeding.  For winter I just strip it, dump manure on top and cover with membrane and leave it until spring.   No work at all. 

Good luck.

Thanks Pansy.   I would never have been able to do it.  Cutting, pasting ??   Haven't a clue.   You sure do sound like an expert.  

BCDays.   I agree, far to sugary for me too.   Blahah !    Your tart sounds delish.  

Your current project(s)

AYm.   Have you thought about having chimney cowls fitted ?   They draw the air away from your chimney.   They are not expensive and might do the trick.   I used to have them fitted when we had fires and woodburners.   Phone a chimney sweep and ask.

Afternoon everyone.    Dry, bright and sunny but a very cold wind.   

Had a really good sleep, didn't wake until 9am.  

Sorry everyone is suffering with aches and pains.   Hope you all get sorted soon.  

I never bother with boiling wine and spices for my baked plums.  I just bang em in with sugar and wine and they are lovely.    I like mine just warm with vanilla ice cream.  

Does anyone know why suddenly, I am having to log into GW ?   I never sign out i just leave it open, but just the last few days it's logging me out.  

Nice to see other wubble wainbows.   It's just the reflection from the earth or something isn't it.  Not really double ?  

Off to fit a new washer on the outside tap.  ANOTHER annoying little job for me to do along with ironing my truss.
