What's spurred me on this train of thought is a tomato plant has popped up in my front garden all on it's own. I know that it probably won't taste very nice but I've left it there as a reminder of my goals that have been put on the back burner for the last eight months. When we first moved up to NSW I gave my sister in law my 3 large pots and now that they've moved to a house with barely a back yard she's given them back to me so at least I have somewhere to start, and when I went to the fruit and veggie shop a couple of weeks back I picked up a styrofoam container which will be great too. I'm thinking of putting some strawberries as a ground cover with the azaleas and some rosemary bushes in the bare garden down beside the driveway. I suggested to Tim that we put a lemon tree there, as I'd seen some other people do that, but he was against it, saying that people would steal the fruit off it.
I would like to get permission from the owners to put in a vegetable garden, like I did up in NSW, but I will probably wait at least until the next inspection. Now all I need to do is find my gardening tools, which are missing, and my gardening book that lets me know what time off year to plant which seeds.
