How lazy should I be?
« on: February 19, 2004, 12:03:07 »
OK.  I'm  a new allotment holder and have decided to take the hard route and not bother with a rotovator.  My previously wild patch is now a number of beds which are 3 metres by 1 metre that were dug over in November (I skimmed the top layer of grass off and disposed of it before turning it over).  The ground is packed full of roots and it took my Dad and I 6 hours to get just one bed to a fine tilth and pick out 3X60 litre bags of weed roots!  I reckon I can now only face doing one more bed properly (ie taking out all the roots etc) and am wondering which plants to treat to the properly worked beds and which to put in the other two lazy beds ... simply dug over but a good majority of the weed roots remaining.

I thought potatoes could tough it out against the roots (maybe make my job easier next year?) but what else?  

Great bb ... I'd never have got this far with out using it as a reference point .  Paul
