|Half filled first bed|
Last Veggie Patch post on 3rd Feb I waffled on about inspiration, planning and finally getting off my butt and doing something. With help from the guys at work, we built (not bought) 8 beds of varying sizes.
1 x 125cm wide x 125 depth x 90cm high - cream
2 x 200 x 75 x 90 - cream
1 x 125 x 125 x 45 - red
1 x 200 x 200 x 45 - charcoal
1 x 150 x 75 x 90 - green
2 x 240 x 45 x 45 - blue on the wall
These are not the real names of the colours - some person at colorbond dreamt up more imaginative names like paperbark, Tuscan red etc. but I'm a no frills girl so its red, blue, green...
For those of you too lazy to go back and look, here they are again.
|Windmill Bed - yes it turns, so fast the blade flies off!|
|Henrietta with the iceberg lettuces|
|Cos Lettuce and the Ants - you can see little ones at the far end.|
|There a Pig in with the tomatoes and spinach|
|A little Lady Bug overseeing the beetroot|
|A bike in with the radishes - it has basil growing in the basket.|
My aspie son was rather dead against the garden and didn't hold back in saying so. Neither of them like change but guess what. He now has a chair out there and he escapes around the back of the house to make his big boy phone calls in private - among the veggies.
So, until i start the chicken coop, i think I'm done for big jobs and i can just enjoy growing things. I'm in the planning stage of the coop so stay tuned later this year or next - i do take a while. Hubby and son are a bit unsure about it so i have to go slowly. I can see them both cuddling chooks and sitting on the bench I'm planning having long conversations with them. I will be standing near by with the biggest smile on my face.
