This little corner has two walls facing south and west. Against the west-facing wall I have already planted a couple of pear trees, and I felt that this area was begging to be turned into a vegetable garden.
Twelve barrow-loads of well-rotted horse manure have gone into it.
The plan is to grow a crop of potatoes next year – not that they are a particularly financially rewarding crop, but the theory is that they help to “clear the ground”. Meanwhile, though I couldn’t resist an autumn sowing of broad beans – two double rows of Aquadulce Claudia which went in today.
For comparison, this is what the same area looked like in March 2009.
