I once told my dad that I wanted to grow up so I could buy a car and drive to the beach to build sandcastles every day.
I’ve got a car now, but I don’t remember the last time I actually built a sandcastle. The closest I’ve come recently has been ‘Project Veggie Patch’, which involved a fair amount of digging and tipping buckets of sand. One of the perks of living on a sand dune.
I’ve never really been much of a green thumb, luckily my step mum is practically a magical garden fairy, so with her help and a fair bit of praying to the vegetable gods, we now have our very own organic veggie garden.
We’re keeping it simple to start with, the aim is to be self sufficient with salad leaves and herbs. Santa was kind enough to get us a copy of ‘How to Grow Food in Small Spaces‘ by the Veggie Patch Co. A great read with some really simple, practical tips if you’re thinking of starting a patch of your own.
You’re all invited to dinner at our place after the harvest!
