Raised veg bed
Small raised veg bed
A few weeks ago we decided to convert part of the flower bed into an area suitable for veg growing. I use the term ‘flower bed in the loosest possible meaning as it was more of a natural wildlife area. There were some wild flowers and of course weeds but it didn’t really amount to much as the wild flower seeds that were sown last year ended up as bird food. The little blighters are some of the best fed birds in Cambridgeshire. Anyway, we de-weeded and added extra soil/compost mix and subdivided up the flower bed into a short section where we have planted French Beans, Onions, Corn and when the soil warms up a bit some iceberg lettuce.
