Maggie & Bob's Garden

As you can see our garden has two beds. We try to grow some tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, spring onions, beetroot, herbs, celery & a few other things. The beds are surrounded by dog wire. On really hot days we cover the centre bed with shade cloth.

We have just bought some 10m wide bird netting (Rare Fruit Society @ $5 per metre for members) to stop the voracious blackbirds. We will use the netting when we have small plants. We have dripper hoses in both beds which makes watering very easy (once per week for an hour or so; slightly more when hotter).

We hope you have a wonderful festive season & may there be some rain for all gardens.
