The following photos, taken during the week before last, give a general overview of the plot. The first three photos are taken from the shed area going anti-clockwise.
First is the north west (top right) quarter where I grow flowers. In the middle is the Valentine Heart rose and to the right of it is the elder tree. The dustbin lid pond is half way up on the left and the top right corner beyond the teasels is left to grew wild.
The north west (top left) quarter will be where I’m growing the potatoes this year. At the top right you can see both the log and daffodils and my rhubarb as shown in the previous post. On the right is the (yet to flower) Iceberg rose, which I moved last autumn, and on the left the stone feature containing a rosemary which is roughly in the middle of the plot.
To the south, on the mulched woodchip patch, are the raspberries and strawberries with the Pretty lady rose in front of them. On the rest of this area I’ll be growing beetroot, carrots and broad beans. At the top right is a small area, that I generally leave alone, containing the log pile and washing up bowl pond. The south east corner of the plot is the middle top of this photo and the grass path going to the left is the southern (bottom) edge. The area between that and the parallel grass path is for onions, tomatoes, sweetcorn and runner beans.
This is the view from the northern (top) edge looking towards the pallet patio, shed and compost bin, which are about half way down the eastern edge. Out of view behind them is the blackberry bush, which tends to grow rather large and is very prickly! Beyond that are a row of comfrey plants plants ending up at an old metal dustbin standing in the south-west corner which is used as an incinerator.
Hopefully in just a couple months time there’ll be lots of flowers and vegetables starting to cover this somewhat bare looking plot.
