New planting beds have been completed!!

 Thanks to the big help by my family, the new planting bed have been completed.
I am thinking what kinds of vegetables can be planted there the option must be limited due to the cold winter.
 Anyway I feel excited and thrilled when I imagine more green, yellow, red,,,colorful vegetables will grow on the new bed and my garden will be filled with more vegetables.


My daughter digs up and gather soil for moving the location of soil beds.

My daughter is flattening the surface of new beds.
My wife is putting daikon's leaves on the bed for fertilizing.

Length: 6meters + 2meters = 8 meters

So many things can be grown in your plot there. How I wish I have that space to grow things too. So much fun gardening with the whole family.

Looks great, Takaeko! You are so well-organised and methodical. And you will probably now have many enjoyable hours thinking about what to grow in that new space.
Is this garden right next to your house, or do you have to travel to get to it?

I saw the post about new gardening plots in your blog.
You seem to deal with much amount of soil which must be tougher than our jobs in my garden!

Now I'm wondering spinaches can be planted if some vinyl tunnels is set up and gather enough sunlight with it even in cold winter. But it might be experimental.

My garden is located within 5-minute walk. I wish I had large space in my precinct to open my own garden.
It is severely cold in England, I think and did you seed or plant any vegetables in the mid winter? Or will you wait for warm days for seeding?

Well, I and my wife are very happy that my kids eat up vegetables. I know kids don't like to eat them in most case..

Congratulation on the new gardening bed! I can't wait to see what you decide to plant here!

Ooo I love a garden bed, yours look just lovely Takaeko. Is it on a block of land that other people can use for garden beds too?

It's lovely that your wife and daughter are interested in helping. I can't think of a better way to spend some family time together.

Can't wait to see what you are going to plant.

Hi Takaeko; The weather in UK now is not TOO cold - about 10 Degrees Celsius during the day - but it is not a good time to sow or plant anything. We veg gardeners call this the Hungry Gap - a time when all the veg from last year is fast disappearing, and nothing from the new year is yet available. I'm lucky that I still have my sprouting broccoli to look forward to. It will be ready from late February through to late April I think.
