Suburban garden makeover: from lawn to lush

The productive garden

I’ve featured the development of the fruit and vegetable garden separately, as the images seem to work better that way. But this part of the garden was developed at the same time as the rest of the garden.

I was luckily enough to be able to include a Gabriel Ash greenhouse and that made helped my vegetable growing take off that year.

In fact, I’d never grown edible plants previously, so it was a great experiment and joy for me to do so. Despite a mid-summer drought, we ate well.
