Garden #1
I made this right after Bec's blitz on a weedy garden bed that had been staring reproachfully at me for several years. I put newspaper over the weeds then arranged prunings, glass clippings and manure on top, and finally added some compost and mulch. I planted zucchinis in it. They grew quite well and I got plenty of fruit from them. However, I did find see quite a lot of blossom end rot compared with the one plant I grew in my normal veggie garden. That notwithstanding, the new garden looks vastly better than the weeds, and was very quick to construct.
