Filling my first raised veg patch

Posted: 21/03/2017 at 12:30

That looks great 

I've found that MPC breaks down to dust very quickly.  I've filled raised veg beds with a mix of two thirds sieved topsoil and one third welll-rotted farmyard manure (bought in bags from the GC).  It's always worked well.

Joyce   I wasn't including you - there were several people who did talk to me here  - I also understand that people often don't reply to posts and that didn't worry me - so I merrily carried on posting quite oblivious - then I received the unpleasant information that I wasn't wanted and it all became clear ...

But as I said - I hope it's all over now.  I don't want to 'take over' - never have, never will - not in my nature and anyway, I have lots to do and a life outside the internet ...

Hi Richard 

Does your greenhouse have guttering and a downpipe leading to a water-butt, or is the rain running off the roof straight onto the soil below?

If it isn't clay down there, what is the soil like?

I was told I wasn't wanted on this thread and that people were trying to keep me out.  I then realised that several people hadn't responded to my posts on here so I more or less stopped posting, just popping in occasionally when there was something particular I wanted to say, e.g. to wish someone well or commiserate with  misfortune.  Apparently that was still trying to "hi-jack"  the thread.  

It has been very nasty but hopefully that's over now ............. I am tentatively dipping a toe in the water .................  .

Hazel ... I'm glad you're feeling better, but please speak to the doctor and tell him/her what you've done and why ...... or the pharmacist at least - reducing the dosage of antibiotic can help the infection resist the drugs.   Cellulitis is potentially very serious indeed. 

Keep resting and keep your foot up ((hugs))

Morning Wonky, BL and the rest of you 

I've just been out and topped the bird feeders up .... my that wind is jolly chilly !!!!!! Brrrrrrr!!!  I imagine it'll be 'quite bracing' in the Lake District Topbird. 

I think that today will involve making a chicken and leek pie rather than playing in the garden - mind you, it's nice to see that the rain yesterday has raised the level of the pond just a bit.
