This week we've been spending a lot of time in the garden. Last year we successfully harvested Lettuce, Potatoes, Chinese Broccoli, Kale, Cabbage, Spring Onions, Chives, Rosemary and other herbs. Below pics of our brassica and potatoes harvested this week.
We unsuccessfully tried peas, tomatoes beans, and the strawberries were mostly eaten by slugs.
This year I'm going to cover everything in a fine
netting as I did with the brassica and redo a lot of them. We've only got a small patio so I use pots.
We have a garden on 5 levels, so other than the patio, a small fenced lawn area, a stoned pergola covered area, a shed on another level and a drive way at the bottom which is currently covered in a really awful compost heap from a collapsed hedge.
Lots to do but just today I cut back the hedge, trimmed the lawn and my eldest and I built a mini greenhouse and sowed tomato seeds - 3 varieties!
In the next week we are hoping to build a large wooden composter and beds for the bigger crops. I just need the wood!
I still need to keep marketing Tiny Land so tomorrow we will be making bubble paintings in the garden too.
Yesterday was lovely we took to the forest and cooked hot dogs over the fire. Noah - my youngest - loves the outdoors so much when we told him it was home time he layed in the earth and hugged the ground. We're so lucky to have such wonderful weather I think spring and summer will be a scorcher!
