With less than two months to go, and inspired by the SBS Harvest and other gardening activities, it was time to get our first Tassie Vegie Garden sorted. Old wooden onion packing crates for raised garden beds, plastic 20 gallon drums cut in half for small planters, check. Dog proof fence, check. Fleetwood Mac song blaring in my head, with words conveniently changed to suit the project, check.
As of today, we now have garlic, leeks, spring onions, onions, lettuce, silverbeet, spinach, sweet corn, potatos, asparagus, bok choy, broccoli, beetroot and an old bathtub filled with mixed herbs and spices. The tomatoes and chillis will go in when the cheeky frosts have finished up – though in Tassie you never really know when this will be.
For those contemplating a new Vegie Garden ready for the Challenge, check out the following photos I found online below for some inspiration.Post your photos of other unique Vegie Gardens you’ve found online, or your own garden to inspire Tassievores to grow their own fabulous produce, we’d love to see them!
