On the last day of the summer holidays this year (boy, was it a lonnnnnnng holiday!) the crumbles and I went to that huge hardware, warehouse, monstrosity and got ourselves some herbs and veggies to plant in our new patch.
I have to say, it all looked so beautiful after we worked out where everyone’s little plot started and stopped and who was having what. Shall we say, there was no method involved at all.
So, here is where we are at now……
Even our dear little garden gnome, wishes he were somewhere else.
“Call this a veggie patch??”
“Wake me up when you have it sorted!”
Okay, little garden friend, I promise this school holidays we’ll make it a patch where you will stand proud!!
You see, we had snails come and visit and our cat used it as his kitty litter box.
I have wonderful memories of my Grandma and Grandpa’s veggie patch growing up on their quarter acre block down on the Mornington Peninsula. They had very organized boxes and veggies were plentiful. I remember playing tag with my siblings in between all those rows of wonderful vegetables, catching butterflies and eating peas straight from the pod. Man, they were delicious!
So, mark my words, this family will be eating home grown veggies in a few months with the “help” from my little crumbles and I shall replicate something I fondly remember as a child! Get the feeling that I am quite nostalgic this week?
