I began to look at my garden at the end of last summer and missed most of the best veg to plant out.
I built two raised beds. At the moment there are strawberries in the left hand side, and I planted some carrots earlier this week. I plan on growing tomatoes up the back.
The second bed has early potatoes in (two rows, 5 in each) at the front part.
It also has Japanese onions and white lisbon spring onion seeds in, both of which were planted mid winter last year.
These seem to take up all the space in the larger bed.
Excuse the mess!
I wonder if someone could tell me if this is about right for the amount of plants/veg to be planted in each bed. especially as there are only two rows of 5 potatoes taking up half the large bed! (I am growing tomatoes & aubergines from seed and not too sure where to put them!)
Also I am a bit worried about my winter planting, they show little to no signs of life, just a few random spring onions appearing. I don't mind if they haven't grown, learn from experience and all that. I wonder if I should leave them to hopefully grow, or dig them out and plant something else instead?
Any advice would be great.
