Four years in the making .........

Well, we have been at the Castle for a bit over four years now.  Throughout this time, Robbie has longed to have a garden in which she can "potter" to her hearts contents.

This was all planned long ago, but the deterioration of my legs and walking/working ability proved to be a spanner in the works.

One of our neighbours contracted a guy called Garry, from Winslow Handyman Services to set up his garden beds.  We were impressed with the quality of the work, so contacted Garry.  He was somewhat tardy in getting going, and possibly a little expensive, but since we were familiar with his work stuck with him.  We, or should I say, Robbie, now has two lovely garden beds out the front, and one at the back of the house - which I have purloined to form a vegie garden, of sorts.

We have planted over 100 seedlings in the "flower" sections, with a lemon tree, mandarin tree, various chillies, tomatoes, capsicum and egg plant in the vegie part.  They all seem to be going well at the moment, so we are hopeful of a bumper crop of not just vegies, but flowers as well.

Photos of the early stages are included here for you all to enjoy.  Just to ensure that we bore everyone completely, I will re-post when growth becomes really spectacular, so you can see the great progress the garden is making.
