These holidays we went to work on a vegie patch. Winter is usually not the best time to plant, but with our Sunshine Coast climate and the little gizmo my husband is in the process of creating, our vegies will be more than comfortable.
We bought some more wooden boxes from Bunnings and wacked them together. Hubby then made a lovely wooden frame for the shade cloth to go over. We layered the bottom of the boxes with thick newspaper, then good quality compost soil and 5 in 1 fertiliser. Beautiful!
This time we have planted – carrots, celery, broccoli, garlic, honey sweet peas, marigolds (to keep the insects away) and kale.
In a separate area of the garden we are planting tomatoes, zucchini, spring onion and capsicum. They are larger plants so they get to be free in the garden.
