Giggleberry Gourmet Garden is Growing!

Our little veggie garden is going strong!!

The beetroot, broccoli, onions, garlic and carrots are growing and growing and looking fabulous!!

& we have one VERY healthy continuous crop of rocket and coriander so have been making lots of yummy pesto.

Over the past few weekends we have been taking advantage of the new season and added tomatoes, capsicums, sweet corn, oregano, thyme, rosemary and a chili plant to the garden! Next is to hang our special strawberry planter and start growing juicy strawberries for summer, Yum!!
We aren't the only ones who think it's all yummy - it seems a few little green naughty caterpillars have moved in on our lettuce & broccoli! Just look at those poor chewed leaves!

So this weekend Milla, Harris and I went Caterpillar Hunting. The kids LOVED this! Milla befriended her little bucket full and read them The Very Hungry Caterpillar book while Harris spent AGES just playing with, giggling and holding his new green buddies!!
