Now one of my faults is that I tend to speak out an idea before I think it through. My immediate response was to turn this patch into a raised bed. Now I am wondering if if should just plant on it as it is because to turn it into a raised bed would mean purchasing treated timber or a raised bed kit. I already have a small patio area next to the greenhouse that I could fit a raised bed onto at some stage and am thinking of doing that instead.
Now back to this patch of soil, should I turn the area into a strawberry patch? Plant it up with herbs or vegetables? Put in a permanent or temporary planting? Or maybe turn it into a cutting flower patch, salad bed, rhubarb patch or something else? I had better stop now as an ornamental pond has just come to mind!
Any thoughts and suggestions regarding how to utilise this patch of earth are most welcome. Have a lovely weekend. x
