Our new Veggie Patch

Take 1 underutilised deck that gets hopefully enough sun.

Add some raised beds, 3 cubic metres of soil, some seeds & seedlings & hopefully we’ll end up with a veggie patch.

Less than a week after planting, the lettuce is up.

Raised garden beds are looking terrific! I can't wait to hear about your harvest in the near future!

They are growing so quickly, it's really exciting. The seeds we sewed last week are already up & the celery has grown heaps in the week. Fingers crossed everything gets enough sun. We plan to plant an apple tree in the front yard too.
