After being away for four weeks with lots of rain and the start of spring the garden is in need of some attention. I think the weeds have been growing overtime but it's so good to see lots of green and also the first bunch of blooms on the roses.
I gave the vege garden a good tidy before I left but it now looks like this ...
the snow peas and broad beans are out of control. Even though it takes a bit of work it is so good to be able to go out into the garden to pick a bowl like this for a salad.
My cos lettuce has had a good workout, I've been picking leaves since August. I wonder how long it will go on for?
Hubby and I decided to build some more raised beds for the veges. The kids helped? him on the weekend.
We're sticklers for OHS around here ... check out the completely inappropriate footwear.
Little Girl considerately took off her dirty thongs before coming inside ... too bad about her black feet ... I now have dirty footprints all over the bathroom floor.
The finished product:
The first bed is my salad bed with snowpeas, cucumber, baby carrots and beetroots, lettuce, cherry tomatoes and some herbs. The second bed has beans,corn, pumpkin and zucchini. We have enough wood to build another two beds which we'll do in the next couple of weeks.
I also started some seeds inside this week. Yes they are in toilet rolls ... apparently you can plant the whole thing ... hopefully that's right.
