This is what I want. A little vegie patch all of my own. I will share with the kids of course.
We have tried once before and had some success in the form of one small mishappen carrot and a few mini watermelons that yeilded about a tablespoon each of pink juiciness. The problem is we have lots of night time visitors in the form of possums and bandicoots. They seem to think all my efforts at growing stuff are purely to provide them with midnight feasts. But even Mr Big has agreed to help me start again, this time building some sort of enclosure to try and keep the wildlife away. I know the start of winter is not really the ideal time to start, but I guess it just means I will have a prolonged planning stage. If anyone has any tips, sites or books to help me along the way it would be much appreciated. I am not known for my gardening skills so need all the help I can get.
