Here is our garden
I’m okay with admitting that it is a state!! The grass is very very patchy there are weird mounds dotted around the place and the soil is mostly sand!
We have decided that we are going to attempt to do something about it.
In the UK we had a teeny tiny garden in our terraced house that had a little planter running down the side, we grew our own vegetables in there and we loved it
Since we moved here we have wanted to grow our own bananas and for one reason or another, mainly laziness, we haven’t done it. However that changed this week.
One of our neighbours grow bananas so we got a ‘banana sucker’ from her.
Turns out bananas don’t actually grow on trees, they just look like trees! They are in fact plants. So they shoot up what looks like a trunk, grow a bunch of bananas and then that shoot dies, in the mean time other shoots will have (should have) appeared and the new fruit will grow from that!
We have a passionfruit bush growing down the side of the fence which is actually pretty nice and smells gorgeous when it fruits. It could do with a bit of a tidy up though
As for the rest of our plans.
We will, at some point, be getting some chickens and so will need to build a coop for them.
Also we want to get back to having some of our own vegetables again. We have some seeds from the UK that we will plant. I really would like to grow some salad but no idea where to start with that!
Thats it for now, I’ll keep you updated with our banana plant and the rest of our garden improvements 🙂
I’m linking up with mammasauraus for her how does your garden grow linky. Go take a look, you will probably find some people who know what they are talking about and definitely some pretty gardens 🙂
