How do I start?

Postby 0_Lisa_0 » Sun Sep 09, 2012 9:59 am

When we get the keys for the new place I an determind to have a decent veg plot but I only have one small space ( I will get exact measurement later). What's the best way to start? At the minute it's overgrown with weeds so the first job is to rip all the rubbish out and dig some good quality compost/ feed in. Do I need to have separate areas for separate things and what are your top tips on how/ where/ when to plant? (eg I know that it's best to plant onions and carrots together as that keeps carrot fly away)

I alway think mixing it up permaculture style is good. You get less pests and can make the most of space. Use wals fences as a planting space by putting raspberries or beans etc and plant foods you like to eat :D good luck!
