Julie Clark commented on Yvonne's blog post 'BABY STEPS - Getting the veg garden going'

Julie Clark commented on Will Atkinson's blog post 'Practically Free Raised Beds'
"We started off with 4 raised beds using wood we already had but when the wood ran out I needed more garden beds and didn't want to go to any expense...so I built the raised beds sort of "lasagna style" right on the ground! First…"
