Title: Hi all.
Post by: Iecabus on May 20, 2019, 12:52
Hello everyone,
Just a quick hi and a little info about myself. I'm a keen plot holder based in Wolverhampton. I have two plots, one full and a half plot. I'm in my second year now, the full plot is nearly landscaped how I want it and the half plot is also well underway. I had mixed success last year with various veg, I'm hoping to do better this year. I still have much to learn and believe this forum will be a valuable asset in the future, its also great to talk to like minded people.
I've attached some pics of my half plot which I've had since January 2019, I hope I have done it correctly.
Many thanks.

Hi there, what a fantastic looking plot you have there. Iím sure as you can spend more time learning how to grow you will go on to have more successes with your crops. Cutting down on weeding frees you up to spend more time with the crops I find, as their years go by the weeds should get less prolific

Many thanks, I want more of a garden feel to this plot. I still have two more raised beds to get on there and put a fence in.

Hi I love the look of your plot, it looks very similar to how I want mine. Everything organised.

Thanks, the raised beds help with organisation and also define the path. I'm going to cover the paths with plastic sheeting and then put down wood chips, should supress the weeds.
