Growing our First Vegetable Garden.

It feels like we haven’t made even a dent in the things that we’d like to do to our house. The list is so extensive that I switch between being excited about all the pretty things we can do to this place and overwhelmed that I might reach 50 before it’s all done!

We have made some headway in the garden however, although that’s not without its own long list of things to do too. Anyway, but we’ve finally finished our vegetable patch! It’s hardly of the ‘Good Life’ standard but it’s something we wanted for the children when we were dreaming of a bigger garden. Here’s what the patch of garden looked like when we first moved in.

It took a few weekends of clearing before we had a nice big space. We started off planting some raspberries, blueberries and rhubarb along with potatoes in sacks but then it became too wet to do much else.

Until we really set to it over the last couple of weekends and spent full days in the garden to sort it all out. It’s been a lovely couple of gardening weeks though, building the vegetable beds, sourcing the right kind of veg to grow in a short raised bed and finally planting this weekend. It did seem perfect to be planting in May, although I think we may have left some things a little late. But May feels like a month of growth, of flowers and freshness; it’s a month of welcomed warmth and new life. There seems to be something a little more optimistic about May that makes me fully hopeful we might actually grow something! May has so far, been a month of weekends in gardens and planting and smiling at the passing butterflies and bumbling bees.

We made little wooden spoon signs to label our veg for fear of forgetting what it was or maybe I’m a little worried that we won’t actually grow anything and won’t know what they are meant to resemble! I am hoping their wooden spoon signs withstand the rain as we painted them using ceramic paints. There were some interesting takes on what some of our veg looked like, such as the beetroot!

And here are the proud owners of their vegetable patches. Bean has got beans tomatoes and strawberries, Pip is growing carrots, broccoli and runner beans. Squidge has got all the salad stuff in her box – peppers and salad and beetroot. Needless to say, they are their competitive selves and Bean is quite proud that his strawberries and potatoes are flourishing nicely!

Now there is just the rest of the garden to conquer Time to get on and tackle the list!

Oh I love the little spoons, they are so cute! A great idea

Thank you! I'm pleased to say a week later and they're still intact! Ceramic paint is the way forward x

Looks a great start and I think it's so important to involve the kids and teach them where food comes from. Love the spoons too.#homeetc

Thank you! Fingers crossed everything grows!

The spoons are a great idea and a fun little task too ????

Aww… what a great project for the kids. And I bet they can't wait until the vegetables for all grown. I love the wooden spoons idea. These are great! ???? #BeInspired in the garden

They can't wait! We had to discuss today why overwatering will not help the veg to grow any quicker!! Xx #BeInspired in the garden

I love seeing children outside in the garden, helping to grow things & learning. This is SO fantastic and the spoons are super sweet. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for linking up #HomeEtc xx

Thank you so much for your lovely comment- I too love it when our kids spend time in the garden! I'm looking forward to seeing what we grow and adding lots more little corners of curiosity in our garden, fresh for exploring! Xx

This is one of my favourite posts I've seen in a while!! It's so lovely to see what you've done and I LOVE the little spoons!!!! I think I'm going to be stealing that idea for our allotment!!! I LOVE it ???? Thanks so much for sharing ???? Caro x

Thank you so much- I'm so pleased you liked the spoons- they add some character to the veg plot. Oooh yes, please steal- they'd look fab in an allotment! Xx

Love the spoons, a great way to remember where everything is planted

Just stumbled upon your post from a Pinterest find. How well did you spoons hold up?

Ah thank you for finding it! They lasted around 2 years. Some are still going but some are not. I should have varnished them, then I think they would have lasted. I have some painted stones that I did with acrylic and varnished at the same time and they are still going! Hope that helps x
