The vegy garden has been planted

I have been wanting to get a vegy garden up and running for awhile now. Digging in this area is not possible so above ground is really the only option. We purchased a colorbond garden bed about 10 days ago, and last weekend put the straw, manure and potting mix into it.

Tonight we planted the vegetables and herbs. In the bed are two cherry tomato plants (Miss 7's favourite vegetable). Red and yellow capsicum plants as well as a new variety of capsicum - a cherry one! It will be interesting to see how they taste. There's also onions, garlic, parsley, cos lettuce, coriander, basil, dill, marigolds and peppermint.

The girls also want some snow peas so we've left a bit of space to put a trellis up and grow those.

Looking forward to our first harvest.

Very nice! Nothing like fresh vegetables! Make sure the girls have fun digging in the dirt!

Fresh from the garden IS the best... now you've just got to fight off the pests... :-)
