The raised beds are an advantage but you still have to work.
|the raspberry box|
- Constructing a strong post and wire support sounds like hard work and costs money.
- As yet I have no idea whether these are summer or autumn fruiting raspberries - hope to find out this year.
- I have a memory of a corner of my grandmother's garden which had been left to go wild and was packed with all kinds of soft fruits amongst which were huge and utterly gorgeous raspberries, so why not give neglect a chance.
- I am lazy.
|rhubarb and strawberries|
The rhubarb had two huge flower buds on it which I removed. I have never actually seen a rhubarb flower - must let one go the whole way one year. Here's why you need to remove them. http://www.rhubarbinfo.com/seedpods This is a link to the very best information you could ever want about rhubarb.
|full of potential!|
One row is shared between radish and spring onion. Then there is the usual salad leaves, land cress, spinach, beetroot. I have pushed three courgette seeds in each corner and will reduce to one if they take. A single plant produces more courgettes than we can use but they are fun/easy and we can share them with friends.
