When the days are long and bright we enjoy a bit of gardening on our small patio. We don't have so much space but we have learned that one can actually get a lot in just a small gardening box. And it is a lot of fun!
We started last year, so we are still pure beginners but have already learned a lot.
The plants are very small at first, but they do grow a lot!
We started with zucchinis, tomatoes, cucumbers, chilies, raspberries, and blackberries. Everything worked out well, especially the zucchinis that became giant! The tomatoes were also very flavourful!
The berries "died" during the winter and we almost threw away the plants, but spring came and the raspberry plant started to sprout again :)
We usually complete our berry stock by picking blueberries in the forest. We can really get as many as we want, as we live very close to the forest.
I grew up with a big garden and fresh vegetables were a part of my summers, and I'm very glad for being able to have a small garden. It is not only fun but extra delicious! The taste of a freshly picked juicy tomato is unique and I want to plant those every year!
