Title: Hola!
Post by: Saltyseabird on September 21, 2020, 11:40
Hola from Southern Spain!
We moved here nearly three years ago but before that I had a beautiful vegetable garden in Sussex - now I want to start building one here. Iím very aware that soil, weather and growing seasons are hugely different here and Iím learning as I go.
Iím looking forward to reading all the questions and advice.
Anyone else here from Spain or other hot, dry climates who can offer advice?
Gracias
Ana

Thank you.
I am starting with a raised bed because our ground is like concrete after the summer. It seems odd putting in crops when I would have been harvesting them in the U.K.  I have to accept that nothing grows in July and August but that most things will keep going for the rest of the year
