I have made a start on clearing out the veggie patch, which is a job that I'm doing a little bit of each day (Little D is taking a lot of my energy for herself these days and not leaving me with much) and yesterday I planted six different types of cherry tomato seeds as well as Chinese cabbage, silverbeet (because the chickens love it), zucchinis and cauliflower. I could have kept going, but I used all the seed raising mix we had in the shed. So I'll give you one guess as to where I'm planning on going before I do the grocery shopping today. If you guessed Flower Power you would be very right.
|From little things, big things grow-we hope! Silverbeet, Chinese cabbage, zucchini and cauliflower seeds.|
I'm also seriously hoping that all my seedlings take off really well and I can give some tomato plants to family and friends, fingers crossed.
I'm really looking forward to being a Mum (to a real live human baby and not just my adorable fur babies) and teaching my kids about the joys of gardening, where food comes from, and for the day when they take an interest in collecting the chicken eggs and picking strawberries out of the veggie garden. Anyone that knows my Labrador Baxter knows that he is a genius at picking ripe strawberries and tomatoes, so I obviously have some skills at passing on my food and garden enthusiasm.
