Raised veggy bed

Ready to plant. A raised bed is convenient if you have bad soil (or no soil!)
Finally add top soil.

Add a layer of straw and manure. Repeat the wet and straw layers.

Add a layer of wet, organic kitchen waste like peels and rotting vegetables, tea bags and coffee grinds.

Start your raised bed with a thick layer of cardboard and / or newspaper. Cover with dry, brown materials like sticks, grass cuttings, leaves, straw, egg shells, egg boxes.
