Tynan's Profile

Where I live: Maynooth, Co Kildare Member since: January 2009 Last here: 3301 days 19 hours ago
About my garden: The vegetable garden is approximately a quarter of an acre, it still has very heavy clayey soil, even though I have been adding compost to it evey year for the last 15 years. The drainage is very poor and in very wet weather there will be heavy lodging of pools of water. I operate twelve raised beds, and rotate in groups of three each year. My biggest problem is with potatoes, there is a very small black slug the attacks the potatoes every year, worse in wet years. The only thing that seems to reduce the attack is nematodes.
More about me: Retired about two years ago, have been gardening most of my life, mainly vegetables with the aim of being as near as possible to self suffient and organic, I also grow some fruit.
