Plans for my raised beds


By Chuffa

Plans for my raised beds

The paths on the plot are 2ft wide, just enough room for my wheelbarrow. The crops are rotated on a 6 year cycle. This is how it works. Each veg jumps up 2 beds each year, so the onions take over the ground where the spuds grew, the leeks take over from the cabbage, the garlic take over from the beans, carrots and parsnips, and so on. So in six years, all the veg are back where they first started.
