    Grown our own, complete novice questions 1st Apr 12 at 7:34 PM
    Can you guys help? may be long post, I do tend to waffle on a bit, but I'm just excited

    Would like to attempt to grow our own veg, nothing fancy or complicated just things that we eat week to week

    Carrots, Potatoes, Lettuce, Tomatoes, Strawberries (poss other fruits?)

    I seen a wooden trough on a shopping channel last year and ideally would love this, but wow what a lot of 's for a fancy wooden box.... anyway talking to the kids about it (2 and 8) an they are both really keen on the idea
    We aren't particularly green fingered or knowledgeable in gardening, I suffer from hayfever so tend to just cut the grass when I'm full of antihistamines and have a quick tidy up round the garden when it's needed and that's the scope of my gardening oh and a few potted plants in tubs in the front and back garden that get a trim and water every now and again

    The back garden is really for the kids to run about, there slides / trampoline etc, as I have a decked area for my table an chairs an the rest is theirs

    So I was thinking about using this little patch...... is it possible, its 40inches wide by 50 inches long, or am I hoping for too much from this little square I also thought I could use these planters, are the any good??, they could go on the decked area at the side

    I have around 30 max to get supplies for this, planters are 12.50 from ebay but would like to know what else I need to invest in to get going

    I'll put my questions in the next post
