Can you do that to untreated wood?  The other stuff is too expensive to buy.

Nice carrot growy thing N2V :wink:

As I discovered on here a few weeks ago you can re-use the same site year after year for runner beans as their roots fix nitrogen in the soil.  So no need to rotate.  Can you grow carrots in the same place/container?  I ask because I have had no success with carrots in my three years trying.  Not a sausage.

Handy for burying annoying relatives as well
Self-sufficient in rasberries and bindweed. Slug pellets can be handy.
