Small spaces big hopes !
« on: November 13, 2016, 18:03 »
Hi All,
Not quite an allotment, had one years ago before moved to current house, not a big garden for a veg patch .... But there's only two of us! With a bit of planning should be worthwhile challenge and good fun.
I have just taken out a rockery, which was overgrown, replaced it with a raised 'salad bed' four feet across and about fifteen feet long. It runs across the front of the 10x6 greenhouse, alongside this is a paved area ten foot long and a yard wide! Ideal for a few containers.

So, big ideas, the bed has a great depth of soil, just finished topping it up from the compost bin, leaving it to rest until spring now. Have some containers and will top up over winter with a few more.

Seed catalogue ordered, have a mate who is rather good at growing veg (wins trophies at local shows) so can scrounge an odd plant/seedling or two as well, roll on Spring, nice challenge for next year !

Sounds like a plan but that's a lot of salads in a bed 4' x15'😊

That is quite a big space.  You can grow lots in there using the square foot method.  Good luck.  I look forward to seeing your progress as my plot is gradually going over to raised beds.
