Here are the front views.. the fence is a boundary from my back yard and the back paddock.
Looking from the back...that little shed was Lisa's cubby which I am hoping to convert into a practical garden room one day..
It would be a dream of mine to be totally self sufficient. To be able to feed my family off our land, I would even have cows and sheep. But I don't think that will happen soon, so for now I am quite happy to grow what I can myself to save a few dollars and also know that my vegies are organic. I grow many plants from seeds as this is the cheapest way to go.
At the moment I have growing.. zucchini..
way too many tomatoes, they are growing into each other from one row into the other...
Needless to say we have been eating lots of brushettia (I'm sure I spelt that wrong but you know what I mean) and I also love making home made sauce and freezing it for my next pasta meal instead of buying cans of tomatoes.
I like to put little mats underneath my melons and pumkins.. keeps them clean.
Spinach or silverbeet
I'm also a very keen recycler and put all my garden and kitchen greenwaste back into a compost heap to reuse in the vegie patch..
and here is my harvest for the day...
Yep, I sure do love summer.
take care, Maryann
ps I've just woken up to pouring rain..hallelujah! Our fellow Queenslanders had to endure cylcone Yasi last night but thank God it was downgraded from a catagory 5 to a cat 3. and there are no casulaties or fatalities.
