    Well after a years break from growing any veggies due to hubby’s health I finally got some time to get back into the veggie patch.

    Quick note of hubby’s health, he is still improving and on medication and specialist care, few set backs along the way, it’s a long slow road to full recovery. It has meant I’ve had to do most things outside and inside the house as well as looking after grandkids, somethings had to stop for a while and the veggies was one of them.

    The extra work created by health issues has got me looking at easier, simpler ways of doing things. Updates to come later :)

    My 6 year old grandson helped me plant a few seedlings and takes a great deal of interest in the veggie patch. Moving into our hot time of the year can’t plant too much, but it’s fun to get something back into the ground.

    For someone who says their garden has taken a backseat, its looking decidedly well maintained and operational! ;)

    Yes, illness and injury sure puts a dent in one's ambitions re gardening.
    Its a young persons game, me thinks!

    I hope you've had a drop or two of rain to stave off potential fire issues.
    None here to speak of and now major fire risk to boot.
    To make matters worse, the spotted gums are shedding their bark this year so the ground is littered with that as well as massive mounds of dead leaves.

    Thanks Wedgetail and ClissAt, that is one of the great things with veggies, doen’t take too many week before you have some harvest to pick. Lettuces have started bolting with the heat though.

    We had some rain several weeks ago but it’s looking very dry, we keep any leaf litter away from the house and mow regularly to keep fallen in leaves down.

    We have a squiggly gum that has just lots all it’s bark too so that’s everywhere at the moment, so a mow next weekend.

    Had to rake up all the bamboo leaves as it was several feet deep after we were away for a while as we felt it was a fire risk.

    Not good at all for people who have been affected. Keep yourself safe.

    Welcome back Kate. Sorry to hear of your husband's health challenges. Where did you get the clips holding the netting on your raised beds, please?
