I have been planning the new veggie beds which hopefully will go in
next this August, but first the big camphor laurel tree on our side of the fence is going to be cut down, this way we will have more sun on the veggies. Next will be the chickens in September, I have decided that four is the magic number, we seem to eat a lot of eggs in this household, me being the person who consumes the most. I must admit I cook a lot of food that requires eggs. I have decided on two Australorps and two Rhode Island Reds, I think they will stand up well when it comes to the boys and Mariah our black lab.
When it comes to types of veggies this year I have decided to give everything a go, I am even going to try growing potatoes, I have been ploughing over my list to make sure that I haven't forgotten anything, and also making sure I have the right companion plants and herbs to go with each vegetable. My main aim is to buy heirloom seeds where possible, if you want mainstream go to the supermarket, growing your own is a chance to try different varieties that are not available in our fruit and veg shops.
