So Far So Good
Firstly I want to say thank you to Yates for organising and sponsoring this wonderful Growing Community. In what has been a rough year, personally, I have found the challenge hugely motivating, inspiring me to get going and turn the weedy mess with rabbits running amok into a little haven of growing goodness (and rabbit free zone!) It has been lots of fun getting involved and has really helped give a sense of purpose and provided a lot of joy! The mini-challenges have also inspired me to think about the garden in a different way and kept things interesting.
I have also really enjoyed looking through and using the Yates website, it is such an amazing resource for gardeners. I have even found information on a garden in Auckland that I want to visit over the holidays from the Yates website. It is called Eden Garden and sounds really beautiful.
Thank you to Sarah the Gardener for her inspiration with her stunning garden and all her growing tips. I also have appreciated her lovely comments on my blogs as well as reading comments on other blogs. Sarah has such a wealth of knowledge she shares so readily!
I have really enjoyed reading the blogs of all the members of the community and have learnt so much. From seeing all the beautiful types of flowers that can be grown, to learning about grow tunnels to sheep dag mulch, recycled glasshouses, amazing garden structures to pumpkin patches in cow paddocks, I have learnt so much from the amazingly talented gardeners in this community.
I am looking forward to everything in the garden growing well and all the lovely meals I will be able to provide for family and friends over the coming months.
This is what I have growing in each bed of the garden patch so far..
Corn, spinach, cabbage, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower
Oregano, thyme, capsicum, chilli, rosemary, carrots, celery, sunflowers

I am looking forward to hearing how people’s gardens go over summer even if the updates are a little less often!
Happy Gardening everyone!
