New vegetable bed - help with ideas
I have cleared an area of back garden that was previously part bare soil and part covered with gravel, made a 6' x 4' raised bed using just some old wood I found lying around (approximately 20cm high) and added some bagged bought horse manure/soil improver from B&Q and a mix of multi purpose compost and some top soil.
The idea is to grow some things throughout the year and get my daughter (3 years old) involved. Both of us are complete novices, however she seems to know a little more than me.
We already grow strawberries and blueberries and have some potatoes in bags on the patio.
The bed faces approximately east-south-east and the soil below is clay. I dug the bed over and mixed the soil mixture together.
I am unsure what to grow really, i'd like to grow something that climbs along the back, maybe tomatoes or beans or even rasberries, I dont know really. I'd like some inspiration!
The bed gets reasonable sun during the summer, getting some shade from the Ceonothus to the left of the bed.
Here's some pics to help!!
