We used to have a veggie garden, then we got a dog and the dog ate all the veggies and then life happened and all we had was Pinterest dreams of a veggie garden.
David and I are trying to be adults now though and do stuff around the house, so we have started a veggie garden again. Actually more accurately my husband has started a veggie garden again and it is looking amazing!
We have the space, it was just a matter of using it properly and making sure the dog couldn’t destroy it, which David has managed to do using pallets. While I was in PE with Cameron I got some pictures showing me the garden all dug up, I will admit to being slightly panicked but by the time we returned, there was a plan and now there is a little spot of happiness in our garden.
He started with onions and carrots but now we have coriander, red cabbage, lavender, parsley, chilli, beetroot, garlic, chives, spinach, rosemary and basil. How cool is that?
It is right outside my office so I look out at it every day and it makes me smile every time.!
We received this little #sendaseed pot with some soil and a seed, there was no doubt where it would go!
David has some great plans to increase what we have in there and add some more vegetable but for now it is growing and the kids love helping to add items and water it every day.
Do you have a veggie garden going?
PS: If you tweet #sendaseed Unilever will plant a seed in their drive to plant a million trees in South Africa!
