I’m back! I can’t believe I missed two rounds of our uber cool photography circle but life and shitty internet happens! I also can’t believe last time I was taking photos we were playing under the sprinkler – now we’re freezing our butts off huddling next to the fire. I love that Australia gives us a taste of each season.
So this month we got around to starting our first little veggie garden thanks to the help of my friend Kyrstie Barcak. She recently wrote her first book Grow just one thing and ever since then, me and the kids have been busting to get started. I reviewed her awesome book here. It’s well worth the read, it gets you itching to grow something AT ONCE!
I’m very new to gardening at the ripe old age of 40. We have lawn that’s still very alive, and a few large succulents I’ve not killed but that’s about it I’m afraid. Once Farmer has finished seeding we have big plans to spend some time in the garden and spruce the place up from looking like a house on a sand pad. Look out Summer I say! So til then here’s a look at our baby steps to achieving our first veggie garden.
This is the spot we plan to have a large fruit and veggie patch. I have suggested the idea of a lady shed…hehe! I’ll need a place to put my gardening tools and gloves of course! Watch this space! lol!
The packet says in 6 to 8 weeks something may grow. We shall see! If only you’d seen how fast those seeds flew out of the packet! Eeeeek! Im hoping they made it to the right spot ok. Once we master the hang of the small planter boxes we shall start the big veggie patch we had in mind. Farmer is rather good at growing things so with Kyrstie’s book we hope to impress him in the meantime.
Be sure to checkout my lovely friend Shannon at My 2morrows photos and take a sneaky look at what she’s been up to lately. She’s always up to something very cool 🙂 Click on each link in the posts til you make it back to me. You’ll see some amazing photos so why not pop the kettle on and enjoy!
