We seem to have lots of onions growing at the moment. I must find some more fish boxes or even build some wood raised beds? You don't need to spend money to grow your own vegetables. You just need to be resourceful like a tight wad gardener like yours truly!
Tuesday was a nice day and I spent the day dead leaving and weeding my many plant pots filled with perennials and shrubs that we have propagated by cuttings and division.
Then I dug over this years proposed potatoes plot. I just turned the grass and weeds in to use for a green manure to keep the soil fertile. Then when I plant the chitted potatoes before Paddy's Day or on it. I will mulch with fym, seaweed, lawnmower grass clippings and any homemade compost I can find.
You can never have enough homemade compost can you? Don't be taking your green waste to landfill sites and waste transfer stations, compost it!
P has just finished building his new compost bin, using all the old wooden planks and fence posts that he found chucked behind the shed. It looks very smart. Too good to throw garden waste in there!ReplyDelete
Photos please JayCee. All those leaves will make great compost.ReplyDelete
If you ever have the urge to rename your illustrious blog, may I suggest "Tight Wad". It could become your nickname in West Cork...ReplyDelete
