Making the beds

The greenhouse beds are in bad need of refreshing. Over the winter the soil has really dried out and is lacking freshness and nutrients. Every year I dig up the beds and throw a load of fresh compost into them. This puts back in some nutrients that have been drawn out the previous season by the previously planted vegetables.

Nothing to difficult here. Just grab some bags of compost from your local supplier and throw some into the beds. Give it a good turn and mix with a fork and then level it out with a rake. N my case I had to pull some of the soil out so that the beds weren’t overflowing out on to the centre path. The soil wouldn’t go to waste however. More on this in a later post.
