Garden Update

In September I set up some raised garden beds in our back yard:



We planted some seedlings in early October, and after a false start (the mulch made great hiding spots for earwigs, which nibbled all the green leafy veges), they're growing well.


The back bed (to the left of the compost bin) has beetroot and lettuce, the middle bed has parsley, coriander and bok choy, and the front bed has three different kinds of tomatoes. We've been harvesting the coriander for a week or so now, and will have the first of the bok choy tonight.

The gardens are coming along nicely. There's nothing more rewarding than eating from your own gardens. We're using our own parsley for our organic green smoothies. :) xxx

Thanks Lia - it's so cool to be able to pop out the back door to get something to eat!

Nice! We have raised vege beds.. although they became a bit 'wild' lately. Must sort that out. I hope you have a fantastic xmas, Charlotte and thanks for continuing to drop by my blog, I appreciate it! X
