It's been a while since we did an update on the vegie patch.
Over Easter, the tomato's were removed and
some new planting happened.
We are STILL harvesting zucchini's, capsicums,
we are still harvesting carrots, lettuce, basil, chives
and lots of other herbs.
The first of the sugar snap peas have popped up,
these rarely make it inside,
the boys just graze on them while playing outside.
Beetrooot seedlings have also gone in.
These are some broccoli from seed we have saved last year,
if you look carefully, you can see some cabbage moth
grubs under the leaf - pesky little varmits!
We also planted some broccoli seedlings.
More carrot seeds were planted, we have about a metre
left of carrots, the new planting will not be ready
before these ones are finished though.
Another new addition to the patch is 3rd borns hand print.
When each of the boy's turned 3,
we did a hand print in the paving around the vegie patch.
The third born has been very reluctant,
it's taken 8 months to convince him,
then we had a big NO just as the cement was going off.
We finally convinced him to put his had in.
Now every day we are asked to go and
inspect his hand print with him.
Have a great Friday
