Raised garden bed No. 1. Raised garden bed No. 2. Raised garden bed No. 3.
Anthony has as just built us two new raised garden beds …… the last two photographs. The first photograph is one of three in our Permaculture Garden Room.
Raised garden bed No. 1: It is winter time in July in our Subtropical Climate in Queensland, Australia so not much is growing. We have had a warm winter this year so there little in the garden to eat.
Raised garden bed No. 2. is a dedicated herb bed seeing we use lot of herbs in our cooking and eating eg. basil, chives , rosemary, parsley etc. etc.
Raised garden bed No. 3. is a dedicated vegetable bed. We went down to a local nursery and about 50 seedlings in things like cabbage, tomatoes, beetroot, spinach, silver beet, peas, beans etc.
In a few nights time we had some steady torrential rain. Water falling from the sky has much dissolved oxygen it and produces abundant growth. The bean seedling in the above photograph looks ready full growth.
