Busy Mum.

In keeping with my last blog about eating your own harvest, I thought today would be a great day to do a few things in the garden. SO with the helps of some of my children I have added a corn field to the garden. We LOVE corn in our house and while we have some already growing in the garden, we have never had enough. So I went a head and put 2 metre square patch of the them in. Oh I can't wait to be harvesting those!

I can't speak for you, but in our yard there always seems to be lots of little or big jobs that need doing and may have been on the list of jobs for a while. One of those jobs was creating a new garden bed around the side of the balcony. So I can now half check that one off my list. The job is half done, but it's an exciting half. What is done is now planted with about 100 mixed lettuce seeds. Hopefully most of them will take and turn into plants for us.

Oh the excitement of the expectation of what might come.


  1. You have inspired me Christina! I actually went out today and got potting mix for 2 long pots I have and 3 lots of seedlings (mini mixed lettuce, cherry tomatoes and carrots) and I am excited to start on this small scale and see how I go with them and then hopefully expand into a vege patch!

  2. Oh Yay! Nina! That is so cool, Can't wait to hear how you go. Nothing like picking and eating your own food to help keep you motivated.
