At some point I will get into growing more of a variety of odd veggies, but for now, while I’m still getting the hang of it I’ve tended to go with the more traditional – you know, tomatoes, broccoli, lettuce etc.
I’ve even started from seeds, and if I can do it…..then there’s no reason why you can’t grow your own vegetables too.
If you have a close look at the photo on top you’ll see that, on the right, I’ve used an old tire (I’ve actually got three tires). Got them for nothing from the local garage and made sure that they had the biggest/widest opening (the bit that goes round the wheel…see, I’m no car expert!) They make super raised beds.
In the other photo, I managed to get an old wheel barrow from a friend of mine – one that was destined to be thrown out – nothing like recycling!!! I got some holes drilled in the bottom, filled it up with good compost soil and, voila, great for the strawberries. It would also make a great herb garden.
Like I said, I’m a bit of a beginner at this, but I did have help…..the books below have been amazing and I’m continuing to use them. If you want to know what the books offer just click on the picture below.
