I have started a course via facebook helping me to grow a veggie garden. It has been really exciting to see all sorts of things happening for this lately. Over the past couple of years I have managed to grow strawberries, lettuces and silver-beet quite successfully but I wanted to be relatively self-sufficient and grow more veggies.
To do this I need more garden beds. So to start with I have chosen a spot on the bank of our property where we can build some raised garden beds. At the moment we are trying to kill of the grass so it looks like we are growing a broken trampoline and some wooden pallets.
More seeds arrived yesterday so I will be sowing even more seeds shortly. Brad said on the weekend that I will be getting an extra bed than I thought I would be so I wonder what I will plant in that one. All my other three beds are planned out. Maybe the next lot of lettuce or maybe some herbs.
I honestly never thought I would become a gardener. My Mum has always been into gardening but it never seemed to rub off on me. If anything I used to be very good and killing plants. I guess that is why doing this facebook course will be very helpful.
