Veggie and Herb Patch

 
We’re attempting to grow some veggies in a newly cleared part of the garden!

Being our first attempt, not sure how it will go but it’s such a great learning experience for the kids and they are so excited to find out each day what’s happened!

  
This plot is actually some corn we grew from popping corn believe it or not! The kids started this “experiment” in a class they participate in at our Homeschool Co-op! 

We’re just continuing it by planting in the garden to see what happens!
 
This plot has a row of Sweet peas seeds at the back and Spinach in the front! We were going to plant some Broccoli seeds too but after a bit of reading found this needed to be started earlier this year to plant out the seedlings now!

Nothing has sprouted yet but we’re watching!

 
This Sweet Basil was grown from seed a couple of months ago, unfortunately it got devoured by ‘something’ while we were away! It’s making a recovery now so hopefully it will grow back nicely! 

   

These two herbs, Parsley and Basil were bought in very average condition and we’ve managed to bring them back to life! The parsley in particular was very sick so was surprised it made it!

The kids are loving helping to get a bunch of herbs to put in our dinners so we’re hoping they can soon pick some peas or grab some spinach as well!

Will try to take progress photos to show the growth over the next few weeks!

What are you growing in your Veggie patch?
