Use what you have, do what you can

I was pondering what to do next and then this quote from Wimbledon tennis champ Arthur Ashe came to mind.

Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can

So, I’ve looked at what’s around me in this lovely overgrown garden.  

There’s is great soil and two massive compost bins full almost to the brim.

I also have about 30 cardboard boxes leftover from moving house. 

And there is a huge dogwood bush in the garden.


It’s a wonderful colour, and there’s plenty of it.


And so, could this idea work for raised veg beds?


I think I’ll give it a try soon.
