That's what I'm planning on - might just start with a couple - see if I actually manage to grow anything! 😂 @carolecuttingitfine

That's how it all starts 😏 just one or two.. Honestly that'll be enough.. Before you know it your sourcing more sleepers and top soil and digging up the lawn 😂😂 @rachelbrooks 🌶🍅🌽🍠
