Veggie garden re vamp after 12 months of neglect! ----- Soil Sterilisation

Here we go........I've never done this before but the idea of cooking those weeds, seeds and pesky bugs makes sence. 

Step 1. Remove all big chunky weeds or if you're like me, WEED TREES from your veggie patch!



Step 2.  Give it a good soaking.  You want the soil to be wet about 12 inches.  (It took us 2 days!!)



Step 3.  Cover and bake in the hot summer sun under black plastic for 6-8 weeks.


Step 4 & Step 5 of turning it all over and planting green manure are to come...I'll keep you posted.
