Guerrilla Podcasts Make Do and Mend is most definitely the way things are going at the moment as Me & Lou make a start on growing our own veg for another year and so our home grown learning curve continues.
Last year our home made plant pots worked a treat, guerrilla podcasts home grown plant pots vegetables. So it seemd like a plan to do the same this year. The snow arrived a month earlier this year allowing us time to sort out one or two new home grown ideas.
First on the list of things to do was to sort out a couple of trenches for the potatoes.
Under the ever watchful eye of Lou. We prepared a couple of trenches for our first crop of potatoes (Arran Pilot Potatoes) for 2013.
Some say i should rotate what i grow! Some may say no worries?
As you know i’m jumping in with both feet and seeing how whatever grows for another year and as before i thought i’d just add a few images for memories sake of what we’ve been up to over the last few days.
I thought i’d recycle an old set of shelves and start using some of the space in the backyard to start growing one or two seeds!
As i happened to have some bubble wrap hanging around from last year it seemed like a plan to create a makeshift greenhouse in the backyard.
Right now i’ve gotta say that i’m not 100% sure if it will do the trick, but there’s only one way to find out and to be fair it’s provided lots of space to store seeds whilst they hopefully do what they do?
Upturning an old plastic container and drilling holes in the bottom seemed like another idea for using an impromptu growing area for seeds for the now. Time will tell on that one as i set about making a bedding box for the back yard.
The hanging baskets for the strawberries are still in place and more than a few of the strawberries survived the wet weather and snow and who knows maybe this year will be more successful?
Who knows what the future holds?
