I’ve just taken a similar plot with one side a bit more cultivated than yours but still plenty of weeds and the other considerably more overgrown. My plan is to do no dig. Cover a part of the less weedy bit with cardboard and put a 3x1.5m raised bed on that. And fill with compost. Plan for the first bed is carrots and raddish. I’ll then repeat this raised bed process as I get more wood and compost.
Grade A thread for skills + emotion. Lovely stuff, thanks for sharing this.
Any thoughts on a good size for some raised beds? I'm thinking I'll start my first one at 3m x 1.5m based on the 3 scaffold boards I've managed to scavenge.

Big fan of this thing locked up at my work. Ritchey logic crankset, 531ST, weird paint, combination of grip and thumb shifters, excellent beater material.

Fair play to Keith, he's more than twice Abdullah's age.
