Last year we had two small planter boxes with some lettuce and herbs in them close to the house. This year we’ve decided to add a few more raised boxes for more veggies. Many years ago when the kids were small we had quite a large traditional ‘row’ garden, but that eventually got overgrown. I’ve now cleared/reclaimed that for my berry patch which currently has raspberries and blackberries and will eventually also have blueberries and currants. Here’s a little progress on the new boxes.
