I took this photo today of a corner of my garden that I’m particularly proud of. Every single patch of earth is used up (which doesn’t happen very often as you harvest and replace) – the layering effect really works, I think.
In the foreground on the left are my Oakleaf Lettuce, then a row of outdoor Tomatoes, then the beautiful over-wintering Sweet Williams, followed by a thick layer of Peas held up with peasticks. And in the background you can see my Borlotti Bean just winding their way up the beanpoles.
As the Sweet Williams go over and the Lettuces are harvested that will give the Tomatoes more room as they get bigger. It’s almost like I planned it :)
