Well with all the rain, the crab grass and patersons curse are raging. Anyway I’ll deal with that over time. So on the 3rd Jan I ordered some sleepers and soil from the local landscaping shop Robinson’s in Yass. So they rocked up the day I called them and delivered everything.
So grabbing my trusty hoe I cleared a 3×3 metre patch. Layed some cardboard on the ground followed by sleepers and sugar cane mulch. Now to move the sleepers, of course they were no where near where I needed them. After trying to carry them (lasted about 50cm) I pulled an old dog chain out of the car and dragged them to where they were required. I stacked the sleepers two one top of each other. Then I used my wheelbarrow (Christmas present – thanx Santa) to place soil in the newly formed vege patch. And to finish it off a few bags of pea straw and blood and bone.
Here is where I cleared away the Patterson’s Curse
And here it is with soil and mulch
On the 6th Jan 08 I planted in my 2.4×2.4 metre patch. The seeds were nothing unusual just Mr Fothergill’s
Sweet Corn 12
Spring Onions 3 rows
Also in some containers I planted
