At regular intervals I have staked the ground with some small canes to keep the fleece off the ground. The fleece is then draped over the stakes and then held to the ground with tent pegs. I have marked each row of seeds and noted the rows on paper.
I watered them well with the hose, tidied up and then had a nice cup of tea. I look forward to seeing signs of growth in the next week or so.

Ok....the first job I guess was to dig over the patch of land that we are going to use for our allotment / vegetable garden and remove all the weeds. This was no easy task - our 'allotment' consists of two strips of land. The first strip being 2m x 8m and the second strip being 3m x 9.5m. Once dug over I have removed all large stones and thoroughly raked over to create a nice fine topsoil for us to plant our vegetables. The start of Vegetable growing in shrewsbury SY1.
