I’ve been inspired by several blogs about living sustainably. I’ve lived a greener life since I’ve moved to Australia but a personal decision recently has given me a real reason to reduce my carbon footprint. So after reading this blog this morning, I made a decision to create a small vegetable garden and it took me only one afternoon from start to finish. It was so quick and easy. I picked up a few styrofoam boxes from the green grocer for FREE and a few supplies from the local garden centre.
I mixed premium potting mix with regular potting mix that I had leftover. I also sprinkled in a few handful of blood and bone and gave it a real good mix. The boxes were now filled up with this potting mixture. The seedlings were planted and given a good drink of seaweed solution. I’ve got space for two more boxes and pots too so more vegetables to be put in over the next few weeks. I will update you again in a couple of months when I start harvesting.
I couln’t capture the garden in one photo so I made a video instead. Turn the sound on because I’m narrating it as I’m walking around the garden.
P.S. I think the mic makes me sound nasally.
