The New Garden!

Hi everybody, I’ve been busy with appointments and writing the last four days, so this will be brief. On Sunday morning I had an audio interview with Evita Ochel from Evolving Beings, which was exciting and fun. I’ll let you know when the interview is posted on Evolving Beings. I’ve written 6k words for guest articles, and hopefully a couple of those will be posted on Wednesday. The poor old WIP has been neglected this week, but I’m 99% there. Come on!

Until then enjoy some photos of our new garden.

I welded the steel frame together and then extended the gate. This was where the hangi was.
 Maree planted the crops.
The shade clothe keeps the bugs out so we can have an organic garden, but the rain and sunlight can still get in. It’s warm in the winter and cooler in the summer.
This is four weeks later, and we’ve already harvested three meals of baby spinach and silver beet.
I also built a frame for passionfruit and grapes to grow on. We’ve planted pumpkins and zucchinis under the trees on the right.
Talk soon, Simon.

  1. WOW! What a garden! Simon, that is so cool. Looking forward to hearing more about your interview and guest blogs.

  2. Good luck with your WIP. I just finished one last week. Breathe. Have fun with your garden. Certainly refreshing for the soul.

  3. Simon,
    Thanks for the photos. I grew up on a farm and love gardens;)

  4. Hi Simon,
    99% there on your WIP, woot! You're on the home stretch! :)

    Thanks for the lovely photos. I love them.
    P.S. I love spinach. Mmm! Enjoy.

  5. Your garden looks great! Ours is doing well. We're eating tomatoes, all kinds of peppers, strawberries, okra (too much okra) and peas. Husband wants to try pickling okra. We have four small watermelon. This year we planted a couple of blackberry bushes. They're going wild!

  6. Hi Simon,
    Love that you're planting a garden..a physical representation of something you're growing internally...nourishing, fresh..yummy...
    Enjoy it all:)

  7. Hi Stephen, thanks for the visit, and yes breathing is good. WIP home stretch jitters!

    Julie, Tess, Lori, Joy, thanks guys. I love seeing you. Farms and garden, big sigh, I miss home.

    That's awesome, Helen. Maree wants to plant some watermelons, and we have more fruit trees to put in. We have fruit fly here that lays eggs and then little maggots eat the fruit, so I have to build another covered enclosure.

  8. Very nice information. Thanks for this. You really have a very informative site, thank you for sharing!
