Seven Raised Garden Beds ...

Finally all the raised garden beds have been built!

It was so exciting to have the final two built, weed mat and soil in place, so I could find more vegies to put in them. It didn't take long to fill them both ... although I'm continuing to look for space to add more seeds and seedlings.

Next the watering options will be added. Each garden will have the choice of the BioCycle, rain water (tank) or mains water. Then the areas around each garden bed will be levelled and covered with weed mat and blue metal. An arch is being built by a friend and it will go between the two garden beds built onto the side of my neighbours and my fence. A bench seat will be below that ... as a place to chill. Not all together necessary, as each garden has a layer of sleepers lying horizontally ... so it's possible to sit anywhere!

I absolutely love your garden! I'm intrigued by some of the plants that you grow that thrive in Australia.

I'm in Florida in the US and I bet some of those plants would do well here in our heat!

Btw, I'm an adult with damon braces too which is how I found your site. :D
