The prepared beds are ready to be planted with vegetable seeds
Simon makes furrows for the seeds
Emily, who'd just hung the washing on the windy drier, looks on while Simon prepares the vegetable beds
Emily discusses the location of the seed-planting with Simon while Angie looks on
John joined the preparation of the vegetable planting. (David continued with his task in the flower garden, although I think he was itching to join us.) John brought thorn branches and cut them to size. Once Simon had planted the seeds, John created a barricade around the entire vegetable garden to discouraged Angie and the other two dogs from trampling the beds
Oh, I wondered what the thorn branches were for. Good idea, unless any of your dogs are jumpers.ReplyDelete
Lindy would love a vegetable garden. She'd eat everything as soon as it looked like food. Right now we have broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, cucumbers and green peppers in the refrigerator, for Lindy!! I put some of "Lindy's lettuce" on Dick's salmon burger tonight and she looked quite annoyed until I gave her some, too.
You're going to love having a vegetable garden, Jo.

LOVE the photos Jo!!
Good luck with the garden - my husband is the chef and gardener - he loves fresh veggies and grows them organically. Can't wait to see what you grow!ReplyDelete
How delightful to have fresh vegies from your own garden. I like the thorn branch idea.ReplyDelete
Hi Jo,it will be great to see your seeds coming up and better still using your own veg fresh each day.It is winter here so much too late to sow any seeds, our plots are being manured and left to 'rest' for spring sowing next year.ReplyDelete
Looks like you are having a great time nestling in.ReplyDelete
It's so funny that you are just starting your vegetable garden (because it's spring there) and my vegetable garden is just finishing its growing season. We've picked the last of the zucchini, bell peppers and tomatoes.ReplyDelete
