What's this blog all about?

Hi everyone!

My parents have a vegetable garden in their backyard, and I have fond childhood memories of watching the plants grow and having very fresh vegetables on my plate.
Now I have grown up and moved out, I am trying to set up my own fruit and vegetable gardens.
I already have a small one square meter space to grow vegetables, but it is too small for what I want! I already have peanuts and a watermelon growing in the grass, and several pots full of fruit, berrries and vegetables!

Once you have tasted fruit or vegetables that have been picked ripe from the tree/vine/branch/ground and eaten within minutes of picking, you will never feel the same way about supermarket "fresh" produce.

My blog will be following my successes and learning opportunities (AKA failures), and will include tutorials you can follow.

I have recently been researching 'Self watering' or 'Wicking' garden beds, and will be trialling them out for myself, including posting images of what I did and how I did it so you can follow along.

I will be creating a post about the basics of how a self watering garden bed works in the next few days. :)
