They are out of control!

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I planted some seeds for the raised vegetable garden? Well the last time I showed them to you, they looked like this:

The plan was to plant them on Valentines day but as most of you will know, I went into labour that day and gave birth to a beautiful little boy. As a result, the seeds weren't planted. Imagine my surprise when I came home from hospital and found them looking like this:

Oh my! It's a snowpea jungle! lol

The new plan is to plant them some time this week while Matty is still home with me, so I will be sure to write a post on how and what we filled the raised garden beds with. I am pleased to report that the egg cartons are starting to break down a little, just as we hoped they would.

To mark the birth of our baby boy, we were lucky enough to be given a lemon tree from my dad and a crab apple tree from one of my oldest friends to add to our vegetable garden, so we will need to do something with those too at some point. As we don't plan on staying in this house long term, we are going to plant the trees in half wine barrels so that we can take them with us when we move.

I feel as though we are getting there. It is going to be a slow process, but I can't wait to eat the first harvest of vegetables from our garden!
