Nice indeed. My veg patch crop has been pretty dismal this year.

Very tidy and neat! Decent crops too.
I must do better.
My winners: potatoes and various green beans
Losers: peas
Everything else just OK.

I'm so impressed. Make's my solitary tomato look rather sick.
Questions:

are those raised beds open to the soil below? or sat on top of plastic sheet
How long do yo think the spuds in sand will stay good?
How did you select what to grow? Ie. Spuds rather than say tomatoes?

2016

Very impressive/ envy -making. My peas were a disaster but carrots did well, now gets seeds from lettuce which were amazing , now looks like a 3 foot high forest as I left them to seed. Strawberries disaster after they vanished , either due to pinemartin or mice harvesting them, we think. Plums laden , apples almost none existant. All in all a very mixed bag which is why it's so important to, Practise, gardening it's so hard to get it right and no matter how many books you read, experience is needed. Remember in history our ancestors suffered famines. and they spent their lives growing food so being self-sufficent in the modern world is not guarenteed

Greetings. the beds are on top of the membrane sheet , and it does help with keeping the place tidy otherwise i would be strimming every week, and as for the spuds in sand they keep pretty well for better part of a year some may shivel a little but pop them in a bowl of water in fridge overnight and good to go, decided to grow on what a bit of everything this year some good some bad lots of gourmandine potatoes this yer
