The Vege Garden

I've been working on a bit of a vege garden out the back. Just planted some seeds on the weekend, so hopefully the torrential rain hasn't washed them all away. Check out the progress--

The plot. Most people just see a weedy patch of nothing. I saw possibilities and fullfilled dreams. And carrots. Build it and they will come.

Cleared out the weeds, made the ground a bit more level, and built an awesome path from some pavers I found down the back. Little e calls it the Yellow Brick Road.

Here's me and the girls putting in the hard yards.

Last weekend. Made some sweet mounds and planted a row of zuchinni, carrots, leek and spinach. Little e's holding a wichitty grub, which for five minutes was going to be her 'pet'. Until she squeezed it a bit hard. On this side of the path are a few herbs- coriander, oregano and thyme. And a row of basil growing from seeds.

Now, to put my feet up and wait for King Harvest.
