Organic Veggie Garden

The back garden - some of it at least

Well here goes!  Our first attempt at growing our own veggies and fruit.   It starts with laying out a garden, which is what I'm doing in the picture on the left.  Got the rotary hoe going with minimal difficulty. We marked out a space (5mx7m) which should be plenty big enough and still leave Jack with a huge football pitch.

We'll get the planting underway as soon as we get back from Paris. 

The weather has been amazing this last two weeks, temperature  has been peaking between 18-22 degrees which is very uncharacteristic for February.  All the plants and bushes have started flowering.

Spring has come early. What is it like back in Auckland :)
