Making our own fun!

Paul and I spent last weekend making raised vegetable beds for our upcoming kitchen garden, for some reason we are wildly excited about this and it spilled over into the every day
Look at our toilet for instance
I left it as a surprise for Paul to find, then I just got silly
Grumpy Toilet
and Sad Toilet
We had paid a trip to Bunnings for supplies and while Paul was working on the garden beds, I was doing more important things
with that done I went to help with the hard work, it really was hard, blisters, sore backs, but very satisfying to see a very long term dream coming together at last, now for the dirt and the plants!
Our first bed
all three
Oh and if you are in Australia and always wanted to grow your own vegetables I can’t recommend the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden book enough, so full of helpful tips and with recipes to boot!
Next stop, chickens!

    Oooh I can’t resist a vegie patch, something about things growing in straight lines that really satisfies! I’m growing in round, raised beds this year to try to improve the drainage in our garden, but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to come with the changed aesthetic 😉
