Getting the garden up and running again
If you've been following this blog for a few years you may remember that I used to talk about gardening a bit. I was quite proud of my little vegie patch, I managed to grow quite a bit of what we ate (though potatos proved to be my nemisis).
Anyway, for a couple of years I haven't maintained a vegie garden. The old beds have been torn down and replaced with a trampoline for the kids, the compost heap has lain unturned for a couple of years and things have basically returned to what they were before I started.
I'm trying to change that now. While I don't have the large beds and active compost heap I once did, I'm starting again with tyre beds and the remains of the old compost heap. So far it's going pretty well. I've got peas, lettuce, zuchinni and tomato seedlings growing in their tyre beds and strawberries growing in a bucket.
