Starting to build your vegetable garden
You can build your garden from all kinds of wood, carpentry a chest from h 50 cm x w 1.80 cm x d 1.00 cm, kids love hammering, coated the inside with anti-weed cloth, using a stapler.
Go to a nearby farm and ask for straw and cow manure, cause you need to fill up your chest with a layer straw, then a layer old newspaper, thereafter a layer old cow manure, again a layer old newspaper, close it of with 20 cm black earth.
Divide the chest in 6-8 compartments
Now she is ready for seeding!
The best vegetables to seed are:
(in my experience)
12 snow peas – 2 section
3 lines carrots – 1 section
2 lines Italian mixed salad – 1 section
2 tomato plants – 1 section
1 courgette – 1 section
12 onions – 1 section
3 lines beet root – 1 section
For educate the children you need some wooden sticks and write the name of “the vegetable to come” on it. The kids love to see them grow and will eat their veggies more easily then when you buy them in the store.
When you make this vegetable garden, you shall experience how easy it will be to pick out the weeds who doesn’t belong there.
