Jumping in here. About to start up our vege patch. Have just placed these in our yard. They are currently inside the chook fence but we will be moving the fence so the chooks can't get them. Not 100% sure what we will be planting yet. We have to fill them with dirt and get some shade cloth first. We have very hot, dry summers so will need to research what might grow here.

Updating. A big change as you can see .
We have only started one bed so far and we just got a mix of stuff to put in it with the plan that whatever survives we will buy more of and whatever dies, we won't buy anymore haha.
So this is what we have setup.
And this is what's in there.
And then in the middle is corn IMG_1479701121.191704.jpg.
If the watermelon takes off, we will replant it (hopefully) over to another bed when we get it ready. So it will have its own one.
The third bed hope to use for pumpkin, potato, sweet potato etc.
I'm chuffed that my strawberry has a flower on it. And one of my heirloom tomatoes. Probably doesn't mean much but it seems like it must like its new home then?

Starting a Vegie/Herb garden?
That's awesome @Ahalfdozen. We've lived here 3.5 years and still don't have a veggie patch! Th first year we spent trying to decide where to put it, and since then we can't agree on how to do the beds . He finally agreed with me on raised beds, and then started talking about Aqua or hydroponics! Add in he works 7 days a week and I need his help to set up whatever we do, so still nothing has happened. Sigh.

Looks awesome. We've put in corn, strawberries, beetroot, cucumber, carrots. Still have growing kale & spinach. Next door has onions, lettuce, radishes and all fruit trees so we do a swap with them

Wow @Ahalfdozen that's a lot going on in one garden bed! Hope it all takes off for you!
Though keep an eye on that zucchini, they're a running plant so they'll take over in no time once they get going!

I have never been able to keep plants alive so I'm waging about a 50% survival rate (IF I'm lucky). Hence why we planted so many things. We will just stick to what grows and the other beds should be full of dirt in about a fortnight so we can start moving some stuff if it needs to be.

Wow Ahalfdozen, I'm impressed, you're going to end up with some awesome gardens there!
I'm so impressed with everyone's gardens/efforts. I finally started one, I'll write more once I get the dinner bedlam sorted.
