New Garden

In the next couple of weeks we will be clearing the site and putting in square metre beds using the same methods as the trials of 2009/10. The plot is approximately 7m x 6m with a 3m x 2.4m greenhouse. The soil is poor but veg has been grown on it before.

The site is about 270m above sea level in a valley that runs east to west. There are regular night frosts at the moment and a cool easterly breeze, challenging but not impossible. We will record exactly what we do with the plot, the successes, the failures and the yields we get, so please come back soon!
