DIY Herb & Vegetable Patch – Inspired Space

DIY Herb & Vegetable Patch – Inspired Space

Our last installment in our DIY month on Inspired Space, is DIY Herb & Veggie Patch.  To me there is nothing better than fresh veggies straight from the garden, organically grown, and full of flavour.  You just can’t beat it!

When time permits, we try to grow our own vegetables.  It’s hard to believe how quickly time is flying, but it was almost (exactly) 12 months ago that I shared our veggie patch with you, along with our herb garden which The Builder built on the deck for me earlier this year after I had some health issues which prohibited me from wandering downstairs to the garden.

Here are some ideas that might give you some inspiration to start your own veggie patch.

  1. I’ve got one of those vertical planters on the balcony and had a go at growing herbs last year. It was an epic fail and a herby mass murder of huge proportions. Nevertheless, this post has inspired me to have another crack at it, it is spring after all. Watch this space!

  2. Oh you’re a darling for sharing my post. I love fresh herbs everywhere. Our vegetable patch is overgrown. We’ve had some great produce over the last few weeks which has helped the grocery bill. x
