Diagonally planted garlic and parsnip

Planted my garlic and sowed parsnip today on my 33 year old raised beds. No wooden edges, just raised using the soil where the paths are and adding compost year after year and never treading on the beds. The beds are about 1.2m wide so that I can reach into the middle from the paths. Note the diagonal planting which allows you to plant rows closer and increase yield!

One thought on “Diagonally planted garlic and parsnip”

  1. Many ways to grow things but I like to see other people doing it the same way as I do! I like the simplicity and the lack of need to replace any wood edges. My beds aren’t 33 years old yet and I have shorter arms so 110cm wide (this varies a bit over the years, a little bit of bed migration occurs!)
