In our last post, Tony showed off his awesome creations for keeping pests and birds off our veggies. We have since been out and sowed most of the seeds for the veggies we going to grow this year. As we used the first large raised bed for the potatoes, we decided to mix it up … Continue reading Sunshine’s Out and Here We Go Again 😊
Hi all, hope everyone is safe and well. After last years experimentation on the potatoes, we decided to change the way we wanted to grow them.

At least we got quite a few meals out of … Continue reading Pests!!
