Using all the spare land


Sunday 09 August, 2015 by Uncle Spike

There are always places to plant something I’ve found. And this year I’ve utilised a spare area at the back of the gardening storage hut for a couple of watermelon and pumpkin. The problem for me is that they need space, and lots of it.




Plant them elsewhere in one of the veggie plots, and there’s no room for anything else; and plant them in the open farm/orchards, and the chickens eat the flowers and the fruit too if it ever grows!




Dunno if they’ll come to much, as the soil there is pretty lame – only added as that area was all ‘built’ up by me years ago with mostly rock.

    I think it’s really impressive what you can coax out of that stony ground!
