Creating our garden over the past year and a bit has been a real adventure, between the early morning rises before work to give it a little drink and the weekends spent toiling in the hot Queensland sun, we’ve become quite attached to our outside space. Having decided to part ways with our current home in search of a new journey, it would have been a shame to leave it all behind. It was for this reason we decided to take along for the ride some of the plants we’ve worked so hard in raising (though leaving behind many in the hope it inspires the new inhabitants to get their hands dirty).
With our entire home in storage whilst we spend the summer in Switzerland, my parents put their hands up voluntarily to babysit our green friends. Since commencing our gardening endeavors, I’ve watched them both grow an enthusiasm for what we’ve been doing and in return offered to set them up with their own edible green space. Passing quality time with dad creating the space was something special and made me realise even more than before the power a garden can bring no matter how big or small.
Having now touched down in Europe the next chapter of ‘The Veggie Patch Diaries’ begins now, I couldn’t imagine not having my hands somewhere in the soil, it is something that has been in the pipelines for a while now and I’ll spill the beans (excuse the pun) in my next TVPD post.
For now some photos of the big move and my parents new edible green space.
