little veggie plot

Both The Boy and I have been ultra busy and a bit keen as mustard, so for good measure we built two more veggie beds, and now have 5 - which you can see in the photo below. The lower 'tetris bed' is officially his bed and will be for perrenial herbs and Asian greens (Bok Choy and Pak Choy), as my fellow is a stir fry wok master. 

I have been soaking seeds and checking on them like a new mother, which sprouted and are now in small seedling tubs growing a big enough to survive the Adelaide sun... except my carrot seeds are taking a long time to germinate. Too warm perhaps?? In the next few weeks we will hopefully be planting out radishes, snap beans, carrots, sweet basil and silverbeet seedlings.

The Boy has been so so busy, motivated and industrious today and installed drippers to our two new Passion fruit vines AND soaker hoses to all four other beds!! WOOT!! Can you see how impressed a girl is by such loveliness *sigh*

Oh, we all used extra soap tonight washing off any undesirable cow manure scent. Fun times in the garden!


  1. Awesome! I am so envious, still awaiting my veggie beds to be built :(

  2. Ooooh it's looking SO good! Very impressed and sufficiently jealous of the soaker hose arrangement. Enjoy watching you garden grow!

  3. Everything looks wonderful - I can't wait to get started on my own little plot! :)
