Part of the reason for starting a verge garden was to cut down on the amount of pointless mowing. While there is still some grass remaining surrounding the garden beds I have also been having to mow the garden beds. The green manure (see cover crop), even though it was mowed before planting the potatoes has still been furiously growing. No major issue although now I have to be careful to dodge the growing spuds, capsicums and pumpkin plants in amongst it all. Need to get onto my straw supplier so I can lay down a nice think mat.
