First crop

Amazing, I had my first crop of potatoes. Wanting a garden to grow plants for dyeing I somehow got sidetracked and decided to grow vegetables as well. I have been amazed by how much water my very small patch of garden has needed. Wisely, Maggie has several large Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) in her garden which are filled using the run off rain water from the guttering of small sheds. This has really highlighted how important it is to collect the rain water and just how much even a few small containers and raised beds need. Beans and tomatoes next! 😋
