Lockdown veggie patch

Lockdown veggie patch

We have a large garden just under 4 acres. It is forever evolving but I hadn’t grown veggies until lockdown and must admit am now a little obsessed. I started out with 3 veggie raised beds from Bunnings a bargain at $19 each. It had to be fenced as we have a very hungry Golden  Retriever and rabbits.  The area didn’t quite get enough sun  but am pretty pleased overall. The fence has now been taken down and I will just grow herbs, flowers and veggies that Audrey doesn’t like and have I planted a Forest Pansy (from Bunnings)  I have a new area  I am working on with wine barrels and a larger raised  garden bed. Stay tuned!!

Re: Lockdown veggie patch

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @LisasGarden. It's fantastic to have you join us, and many thanks for sharing your project.

 

I think lockdown has seen many of us turn to our gardens, if for no other reason than to clear our minds for a little while. I have also created a couple of veggie patches during the time, and I've found them delightful, especially with a young daughter to help. It just gives us another thing that entertains her, and she loves getting her hands dirty and pulling carrots.

 

You've really achieved a spectacular crop there, considering the less than optimal sun conditions. All the plants look rather healthy! Those 120 x 90 x 30cm Merino Raised Garden Bed really are great value, and I'm impressed to see how well you've utilised them.

 

I look forward to hearing more about your plans around the garden and encourage you to keep us updated on your progress.

 

Great work.

 

Mitchell
