Raised Veggie Garden Part Two

Well, we've had the soil for our two veggie garden beds delivered and we worked together to shovel it all in, ready for planting.

With all of us shovelling, it really didn't take very long at all to fill the beds with the good soil; complete with added mushroom compost.

It is really good to have a veggie garden again; we were all missing our large one that we had at our old house. We're looking forward to the next process now ... planting lots of seasonal veggies (and a tad more decorating by me!)

We mulched the beds with clean hay, then planted the only two plants we have for the time being! A tomato and a chili plant!

 I bought this lovely old fashioned timber chair with a partner for it, for five dollars each. The partner is in the lounge room (it's been restored) and I thought that this one would look beautiful here! It's the older, less repairable of the two, so I don't particularly mind it being out in the weather getting more of a 'natural rustic' appearance! I've seen on Pinterest an older chair than this one with a climbing rose growing all over it; I'm going to do the same, but with the rose being a 'miniature climbing' one and in a pot.

Gardening is such a wonderful family activity and it adds so many blessings to our home. It's so nice knowing that hopefully soon (when we visit our neighbouring towns monthly Saturday markets) we can stock up on very well priced seedlings of our favourite herbs and veggies. We may even purchase some dwarf fruit trees for potting, it's easier to take them with us then if we have to leave our rental!

So, between our two kitties, our little puppy, our six chickens and our home-made, recycled veggie patch, our little town block is feeling even more like a snugly little country farm house for us to call home!

I hope you're enjoying your homes and those you share it with!
