I’ve been toying with the idea of making my main bed easier to manage as the existing mesh has fallen into disrepair over the winter. Unfortunately it is required to keep all of the local cats out!

This is the idea I have come up with…

I’m going to make three seperate wooden frames with strong plastic mesh panels. The idea is that to get to a section of the raised bed you can just lift off a box section and continue with the planting and just place back again when done. I shall use a light wood so they should be very easy to move about. Each box will be 109x87x60cm so I’m going to buy just over 30m of wood to build them all!

Back to the plants and the tomatos (big zac, cedrico) and chillis (apache) are doing great at the moment…
