|The grape bush that came with the house|
The place is old and the rooms are of a larger-proportion variety. Best of all, I have ample space for a home -office and a veggie/herb/flower garden. I'm now happily settled in there and have started to periodically plant some veggie seeds. Part of the front garden was just dry and neglected. That's where most of my garden will be situated, though there are some portions of the yard at the back where I can also plant something. So far I've planted corn and cabbages. I will expand my range in due course.
I have also started a compost heap. There are a lot of trees and bushes in the yard, I've been collecting the leaves as they fall and throwing them into the heap. The container is not going to make sufficient compost for my garden, but it's a good starting point.
The great news is that, it has been raining so much in Johannesburg that I doubt drought will be a problem like it was in Phokeng. Also, this is a different climate region, not semi-arid like Phokeng.
I'm looking forward to this new adventure.
