Evening all!
I asked a few days ago about books to help me with a new no dig veg plot. I bought this one for now and I’m really enjoying it! As a beginner I’m finding it  full of info on creating beds and really helpful descriptions on veg and planting timelines. Anyway, here are a few pics, thought it might be useful for anyone pondering a purchase!

    I’ve never had good success with sowing carrots in trays and transplanted.

    Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.

    He does recommend they are sown direct as they are more likely to fail/fork when transplanted.

    Carrots don't transplant. ;)

    I've often transplanted carrots sown a few to each seed module. It's a good way to get an early start.

    Looks like a good book to get you started!

    Growing seasons start earlier or later each year especially with climate change, when to sow, when the conditions are right.
