The most organised veggie patch on the block


I am always looking for veggie patch ideas, and I came across an image on Pinterest that took my fancy. Almost every vegge garden that I look at is untidy, messy and unorganised, it’s almost like every vegge gardener with a green thumb lives like a slob or is totally oblivious to the mess that is around them.

It is something that children in the suburbs today may never see.

So I think it is time, we need some inspiration, tips and trick on home grown vege gardens. If you have the green thumb in your family, please share your knowledge with us, so that we can all benefit from your green wisdom. I will try to collect as much information from the web, but the sweet spot will come from our home grown audience.
