Researching: DIY vertical garden ideas that actually look good

I can see a spring project for the kids here

Winter Greens: what to plant right now

Spent some time in our garden today. Separated some Rhubarb and put it onto the verge along with some strawberry runners I had propagated. Finally got around to planting the garlic which had arrived 3-4 weeks ago (its been busy!) and dug in a heap of faba bean as a cover crop.
Beets, Broc, cauliflower and carrots planted about 3 weeks ago are going well. We have had some pretty fine sunny (but coolish) days which has meant the soil has stayed relatively warm. The mornings are getting decidedly cooler now (making it less inviting to get out for a run), so we’ll see how the plants fair as we head toward winter.

Bean Tipi: the harvest

Our bean tipi doesn’t look quite this fancy however the mild autumn days will see the beans & peas bulk out in the next few weeks.

I reckon my boys would be in for a few of these and they’ll fill in a bit of under-utilised space as well
