A few months ago now I began a personal project with my wife to live a little more sustainably and try to do our small part in maintaining a better environment and healthy lifestyle. With a love of freshly grown organic produce our decision was made, to grow our own! We were not out to live completely off of our garden, but more so to take advantage of our subtropical climate, large backyard and attempt to reduce our weekly green buying.
The past couple of months we have been busily constructing our raised garden beds, prepping soil and utilising various composting methods (of course along the way giving the gardening reference section at our local library a hiding as we’re no experts at this).
Somewhere along the way I decided to create ‘The Veggie Patch Diaries’, a subsection of my website devoted to the documentation of our garden’s trials and tribulations. As I write this we have just began thinning out our newly sprouted radish seedlings which have made it to tonight’s dinner table!
Stay tuned for more on ‘The Veggie Patch Diaries’… coming soon!
