One of the things I have wanted to do when we owed our own house was to grow my own vegetables. We have been in our home for over a year now and we have yet to start the project as we didn’t really have time as we both work over 35 hours a week.
However, since lock down for us in Ireland is almost over, and the weather is absolutely scorching out, my husband and I decided to start. The first 3 photos are the before. We have a lot of work to do as you can see! There is a barrier dividing our land to the farmers land and I have also noticed that it has collapsed slightly, maybe from the pressure of the weeds i’m really not sure. What I did to start was get a rake and rake out the weeds and push them down so my husband could easily get the strimmer to them. The result is the next couple of pictures 🙂 …
Have to say it makes a huge difference just doing this. My plan next is to completely clear the rest of the weeds by the divide, because eventually we will plant hedging so it will be easier to manage. However, we do need to dig up all that remains. Ideally, for the vegetable garden I want to section it off and have a covering for it, as we do have foxes who come around our yard every now and then. Then around it put some rockery and some lights to make it more appealing at night. I will check back in a couple of days with some progress pictures.
