Garden play

I just love this time of year. Time to plant the summer vegie garden. Have you ever grown your own vegies? It is the most rewarding experience to be able to fill your dinner table with your very own organic fresh food. I am not at all of the scientific way to grow. I just have a very simple method.
1. Give the soil food (and plenty of it) e.g compost, manure a bit of NPK
Let it settle a week or so

2. Choose your vegies. You can grow by seed if you like but that really means raising them in seed trays up to 4 weeks before you want to plant out. I usually just buy seedlings.

3. Plant out your garden and water. It is helpful to do a bit of study inot companion planting because this helps reduce your pest problem.

Each morning I spend maybe half an hour debugging and tending my babies and telling them how fruitful they will be this year and whala! In a couple of months you are reaping the rewards.

So give it a go. You won't be sorry.
I will post here step by step as I create mine.

Have fun
