Winter Producing Garden

Mmmmm, i love homegrown produce. Nothing tastes better then goods picked straight from the garden. I don't get to the local markets every week so i have to bite the bullet and purchase from the supermarket. You certainly notice the difference in taste!
I also enjoy pottering out in the garden, chatting aimlessly away to the plants and animals, sometimes even having a grand conversation with the wind lol

Hubby has been busy the past couple of weeks creating portable garden beds. All the materials used were recycled. Some being sourced from local scrap bins and some from the farm. The only part that cost us was the seedlings and potting mix (we got composted cow/sheep manure from the local saleyards). We also found a concrete trough laying around the backyard too.

We've had a couple of frosty nights so i had to, as my 5 year old tells everyone, "put the plants to bed" . I only covered them with a garbage bag but will get hubby to make something that doesn't squish the plants.

So, i have planted potatoes, lettuce, peas, beans, strawberries, brocoli, cabbage, beetroot.

The hard part now is waiting for it all to grow!

Until next time
Happy Gardening
