Starting our veggie garden...
I always wanted my own veggies.

With winter around the corner we used the opportunity to plant some "seeds of success", a.k.a. spinach, to test the soil

We planted and got busy with other tasks (we'll revert back to this garden later to see how things developed).

Before the next winter, we added some drains leading to trenches to lead the excess water away.

Potential
The spinace took hold; growth was a little slow (partly due to cold weather).

We got to work tilling the clay bank behind The Log Cabin to build beds.

We like to save and recycle where possible 😊.

We built our beds with old poles used to hold up vines many years ago.
