Yesterday I finally won my battle with a bed base. In an effort to recycle and save lots of money and have a neat looking garden bed, I had kept an old bed base from a bed we’d had since we lived in Singapore, and thought it would be easy to rip it apart and turn it into a garden bed. Well, some of it was easy. But those things are surprisingly well-made! I just couldn’t get the springs out from the base, as they’d been nailed and stapled in very firmly. In the end I just took to it with a hammer and whatever brute force I had and pulled it apart. [insert Amazonian roar here]
And so I replanned my existing garden beds, extended them a bit and laid some more no-dig garden beds. So you can see in the pics, there are already some mature plants alongside the seedlings. We’ve already got maturing spinach, leeks, red onions, spring onions, parsley, broccoli and rhubarb. I planted tomatoes, basil, capsicum, zucchini and eggplant. Doesn’t that sound like a delicious salad?
