 So a little update. Raised beds working well. one planted out with Salad leaves and the other has Tomatoes, Sweetcorn (mini) Peas, Beans, Aubergine.

I've just made some. The previous owner built a wooden deck , but built it above the damp proof course so i had to take it down. So rather than wasting the wood i made raised beds

Hello gang,
