The vege garden in the back yard has fed us for four years but now the pōhutukawa tree in the street to the North has grown huge and now we have no sun.

This weekend i set up three raised beds in the front lawn, and carted about eight wheel barrow loads of soil.

I've planted some of our potatoes and taewa there. I'm gonna need about six more beds!

Another reason to move is the jolly sink hole. Over winter a hole appeared next to a new garden bed. It seems to be an entire oil drum, buried about 10cm under the soil.
