Plotting 2011

We met at the garden today to make a few decisions for this year. One of the most pressing is the disruption to the garden as and when extensions are built on the back of foundation house. Luckily we met a gentleman there who had plans for the work and some idea of how much space would be needed. The conclusion being that the first row of raised beds and fruit trees would have to be moved. The herb spiral will need relocating too. This information spurred us on to action whilst the weather was good.
We've transplanted the garlic, the raspberries and disassembled the wood surrounds to all the raised beds that are affected.
We managed to get a small harvest of parsnips and celeriac, then adjourned to the pub to decide on what to grow this year. Our wish list is for:
Broad beans
Runner beans

We want a salad bed with lettuce,rocket etc.

We also want to create extra colour with Marigold,Cornflower etc.

Think we might need a bigger garden!

I've amended the planting planner on the right hand side of the blogsite, click on it if you want to see the initial proposals.

Our aim is to meet on Sunday January 23rd, weather permitting, to finish off the moving of the beds to the rear of the plot to create a permanent home for the fruit trees. We could do with as many hands as possible to ease the load so please pop down if you're free..midday onwards.
