Grow Food Not Lawns: Completing our Garden Beds

This is a great article by Milkwood on how to get your vegie patches started.

I saw an article on Gardening Australia yesterday about ‘double digging’ and I’m seriously considering it for our chilli patch, to try to improve the soil ahead of planting, but I just don’t have enough compost, so I’ll have to buy it in.

Having worked for a number of years in licencing and compliance of businesses such as composters, I’m particularly weary and aware that a lot of them do not have your soils best interests at heart, and will include materials that include heavy metals and chemicals just to make a quick buck. So make sure you research the source before you purchase!
