Thanks @Tamtam, I will definitely buy some of that, hopefully it comes in big bags! lol
Do you have a compost bin OP? I find compost is best for planting stuff in. You just put in all your fruit and veg scraps, lawn clippings and I occasionally put in some horse manure. Takes about 3 months to break down so you can use it, but well worth the wait.
We used to @LittleBug'sMum, but we got rid of it after a building and pest inspection as they told us compost bins attract termites.
I do love that idea though, and I know it's something the kids would enjoy doing too. Thanks for the suggestion.
What about a worm farm? I really want one, but they need to be in shade and 90% of our backyard bakes in sun so I have to wait. The liquid that's produced is amazing for your garden. And I believe it's so strong you don't need a lot, you have to water it down.
We're only in a townhouse with a courtyard size backyard, so not really. I'm happy to wait til we have a real backyard, but it will be one of the first things I buy for the garden haha
How about a worm tower? They go straight into the garden bed = instant aeration and fertilising!
Also - I'm going to go against the grain here - I have mint in one of my raised garden beds and love love love it! - yes it does take over but we go through an extraordinary amount in summer drinks (mojitos anyone?), salads and sauces (salsa verde, garlic mint yogurt)
Zucchinis can be great producers, tomatos are rewarding and the kids love peas!
I saw a worm tower on bhg where would you get one
Ps I must be the only one mint hasn't taken over ( and love it and want it too lol)
I've gotten mine from Bunnings and masters. They are brilliant -
