Gardening Middle

This is the next chapter in our gardening adventures…

Surprisingly, many of the plants in our little raised garden bed have been growing rather nicely. Although I’m sure this has more to do with good soil then my green thumbs. We did encounter some problems with wilt disease on our tomatoes and have been having a vicious war with invading slugs!

This is our slightly overgrown garden bed with mountains of Parsley and Basil, a delicious Silverbeet (Rainbow Chard) and a gigantic Chilli bush!

We were a little over zealous with our parsley planting, and ended up with 8 huge bushes!

The Rosemary bush is growing nicely, and has been well used for Lamb Roasts and Rosemary Chicken Drumsticks!


The Zucchini plant has been flowering beautifully.


We've been having great success with our Strawberries...


And they've become Boo's favourite thing to pick and eat straight from the garden :)

Hopefully our gardening success continues and we can try out some more challenging plants!

my apologies...

I have to apologise for the lack of posting lately. We are currently on holidays in beautiful Tropical North Queensland! We're back home in a week, so I should have lots of new posts for you after that. Until then I thought I would share with you a little picture of Boo enjoying a ride on his first big train! It was a very important life moment for this train mad child of mine! 



And this is my little mouse. Falling asleep on Nanna's lap after a busy day...
