Vegie patch

Planting tomatoes 2011

Community rocks! A good friend of mine has very kindly offered her very large backyard for a community garden to a bunch of us. Last Sunday three mums and a whole bunch of kids got busy shovelling mulch and dirt, chipping weeds and planting crops (these are our Roma and Cherry tomatoes). Thankfully the weather was kind and didn’t heat up till the afternoon (not like today 38 degrees people!!!!).

She already has an orchard and that’s a mulberry tree behind us, just don’t look to closely at the bugs in the mulberries. We’re going to plant up the next paddock with pumpkins, watermelons and rockmelons. I reckon we might even do some preserving come harvest time too. Fun!

As much as I hate to put photo’s of myself in I just had to show you what we’ve been doing.
