I think Charles Dowding is my new personal hero! I have watched some of his videos and have ordered the original book, on organic no-dig. I have vowed that starting in the new season I will go no dig, and we have started a huge horse manure compost pile for just that. My bf has a fragile back and so I want to spare him digging in our clay soil. Also, if I have results anywhere near what CD gets, I will be chuffed. I don't want to do raised beds with wood though, just heaped sections of plot made from compost and grow the veg really close together (which I have already seen works much better than very spaced out plantings). I don't have a greenhouse but I am going to try at least to get a little cold frame going so I can start off a few trays of lettuce, onion, beets etc a few weeks in advance. He has one propped up on a manure hotbed, which I would love to try!
I have been doing what he recommends with salads, like, not cutting the lettuce but just picking leaves and I have been nursing along some lovely green stuff (lettuce, rocket, mizuna) for several weeks.
