At the moment my garden is just starting.
I retired and returned home to care for my elderly mother. The house and gardens had got to much for her an my father so, to say it was a mess is an understatement! Dad was a hoarder so there was all sorts of things in the garden which took me months to clear.
Just last week I finished clearing the last bed, it was a flower/shrub bed but is going to be more veggies. I have wired it to grow beans up. I have planted rhubarb, raspberries, loganberries, Tay berries, around the perimeter, also three mini fruit trees, cherry, plum and apple, I built some cold frames from junk that was here, planted out spuds, beets, spinach, rocket and a few other things. No room for a greenhouse and a shed so the shed won as I needed storage. I have many large sheets of glass so, I am looking at a way to fix them in one area to make a three sided protective area for peppers, tomatoes and gherkins.
We have had ideal weather, sunny and rain. Certainly the weeds are showing through though not quite as bad as I was expecting them to.
I sacrificed half the veggie patch to make a car standing for four cars. About the only thing I could do as there is never anywhere to park around the area. I had access from the private road to the property but it meant inconveniencing the neighbours which is why I made the area for four cars.
When things are up a bit higher I will send before and after pictures.
