I have finally gotten around to getting some measurements and drawing up a plan for my vegie garden area
I'm (probably) going to make the edges of the beds from my left over bricks and will probably be 3 or so bricks high and I am thinking of using some kind of stake somethingorother to secure them in the ground, maybe a tent peg type thing (suggestions welcome as I don't really want to be concreting).
The soil that I have brought in is pretty good quality but the soil underneath is pretty crap so I'm thinking that I might start them out as a no dig garden by putting newspaper down, wetting it and then put a layer of lucerne, then a thin layer of cow manure, then a layer of compost, and then repeat the layers finishing with a thick compost layer as per the fact sheet on the BAAG website (http://www.baag.com.au)
Now that I have drawn it up to scale, I am thinking I might make the pathways 60cm between the bed's instead of 50cm for a bit more space seeing as I have it but I just couldn't be bothered changing the picture!
The vegie area is at the back of the house which faces north
Thoughts and comments??
