Vegi Garden Update

Our little vegi garden is getting there, we have a mixture of seeds, seedlings and mature plants growing.

They even survived a big down pour the other week, which saw us go into some serious damage control.

But as you can see all is well and hopefully we will see some fruits of our labour.
Fingers crossed

The Vegie Garden

This is our second attempt at creating a vegie garden on one of our balconies which rarely gets used, so what better way to utilise a blank space than to get the kids into vegie growing, I can't say that our first attempt was a big failure we did manage to get two little carrots out of it.

This is my lovely daughter lovingly planting the seeds to put into our little hot house, Just need to remember that when they sprout to put them in the bigger tub.
My little man was impressed by the colour of the bean seeds hopefully he will be suitably impressed with the beans themselves and actually might eat them. Finger crossed.

We plan to go and purchase some bigger plants and pots so we can have a wide variety to watch and cultivate.
If we can make a good go of this, I am hoping that my children will grow to love the joy of growing what you can eat.
Stayed tuned

The Porch

I am not sure if anyone feels the same as I do about porches.

There is something homely about them, they see so many things they hear so many stories and hold them treasured for years.

One of my favourite porches would be at my Uncle and Aunties property in Rushworth, we have spent many hours sitting chatting with friends, the kids or quietly reading a book.

It is a place of comfort and serenity that is hard to come by.

This porch is adorned with objects that tell of recent adventures around Australia (which my Auntie and Uncle have seen a whole lot of), It also tells of lifestyles of times gone by and depicts the life they choose to live now.

So many memories and experiences to be shared or to enhance the great feeling that this porch provides.

I look forward to having such an area that I can sit and ponder what I have experienced in life and share good times with my family and friends.
