"Great Work!!!!!! Just be aware not that if there are cats in your neighbour hood, they might think you just made them a new toilet lol!!! You'll love the fruits of your labour when those first shoots poke through. Well done."
"Well done! Regardless of the size of your vegetable patch always go at your own pace, don't overdo it and above all enjoy what you do.

I've got a tiny derelict garden and I'm going to turn half of it into a veg plot. I'd like to get going asap as I may only have the garden in its current state for 6-9 months (I'm impatient to get gardening!). Is there anything I can sow at the moment? Or do I need to be very patient and wait? Thanks for any advice!EmmaSee More
