The last few weekends have been lovely.
The air has warmed and the sunshine lures us into the garden. It’s lovely watching everything slowly coming back to life after Winter.
Jason has been busy. He has built me three big vegetable garden beds.
And this last weekend he built a compost in the corner of the backyard. Near the chickens and new vegetable beds.
He has also worked out a way to build without me holding the wood.
I’m a bit unreliable because my mind drifts and so does the wood. So we are both thankful for clamps!
Teddy had his own tools and follows Jason around as he works.
While Max comes and goes, as different things in the backyard catch his attention. He is a lad on the move that one!
And Ruby jumps on the trampoline, makes fairies houses and mudpies.
With the new vegetable gardens built, I had the itch to fill them straight away.
So far I’ve planted spring onions, snow peas, lettuce, spinach, asparagus spears and artichoke.
And I have a big list of what will come next. Zucchinis, cucumber, capsicum, rhubarb to name a few. The children all have requests too, pumpkin, watermelon. All the big things.
We’ve also extended our strawberry patch along a rock wall and I am hoping some strawberries might even make it inside this year!
I’m thinking of adding one more blueberry bush near the other two. Then I will have a nice little blueberry corner.
