What exactly does it take to create a patch from scratch?
I’m about to find out as I try and turn part of my garden into a productive growing area.
From clearing away the mess and preparing the soil, to making sure there’s room for a bench and deciding the best crops to grow in a small space, A Patch From Scratch aims to provide a simple, straight forward adventure in kitchen gardening.
Keeping Things Simple
Growing your own can appear daunting sometimes, and I’m hoping to show that it needn’t be that way. If a simple soul like me can clear a space in their garden and grow some delicious veg, anyone can.
As I go along, I’ll share my progress (good and bad!), tips, and upcoming tasks, so if you’re planning to start your very own patch, I’d love it if you joined me for the ride.
Still a Cheery Allotment Blog
I’ll still be blogging about my allotment too, so, for now, Real Men Sow remains a cheery allotment blog, but for the next year or so, it’ll be the home of A Patch From Scratch too.
