Our house has a front yard and a back yard (and the sides as well).
I guess that’s what all bungalows are like kan, hehehe.
In the front garden, on the left side of the driveway is the grassy lawn area with rose bushes along its 2 edges.
(saje je tayang some of the rose bushes, hehehe.)
On the right side of the driveway pulak is a small strip of tanah/ garden area.
The previous owner used to plant roses here but we all cabut cos there was just too many roses, tak larat we all. So, we gantikan and planted seasonal veges there.
Last year, we planted capsicum and zucchinis there.
This year, we put a bed of dried grass on it and planted some watermelon seedlings in a pot. Once the seedlings dah membesar, hopefully akan menjalar atas the grassy bed lah.
Our watermelon seedlings.
Along the same strip, we have lemongrass bushes and lavender.
And in the back garden pulak, we have 2 separate main areas of vegetable gardens/bed. Separated by a patch of lawn.
Kalau ikut The Other Half, dia nak aje penuhkan the back area ni dengan raised garden beds along the back wall….
The main vege patch yang dah sedia ada masa we all bought this house.
The main vege patch dah penuh dengan tomatoes, sugar snap peas, silverbeets, capsicums, different types of chilli plants, okra, eggplants (the lebanese and the big varieties) …..
and also daun kesum yang we all tanam inbetween the vege patch and the back wall (sebab dah tak tau kat mana lagi nak tanam the kesum, hahaha).
Punyalah happy nya daun kesum to get a big space all to itself.
The second vege area where we put the 2 no-dig garden beds and also the raised garden bed(against the back wall), the greenhouse, all the pots and planters and a table for The Other Half to do his semaian.
Our grape plants pun tengah galak berdaun sekarang ni. Every so often The Other Half has to tie them to the shaded roof woden bit. Hopefully in a couple of years time, the grape will cover the whole area lah, redup sikit kan .
Tengoklah our cucumber plants ni, sampai dah ke lantai diaorang menjalar, hehehe….
His greenhouse with all the hasil semaian. I have no idea kat mana lah we all nak tanam all the seedlings ni sebab I rasa our backyard ni dah jam-packed dengan plants.
(We keep the seeds in here masa Summer ni just so tak hilang moisture sebab Summer kat sini sgt lah kering nya).
Can’t wait to use it fully masa Winter nanti so bolehlah I semai benih chilli, cucumbers, zucchinis awal2.
The raised garden bed (against the back wall) yang dah ada blueberry, redcurrant, 2 chilli plants, a row of snow peas and a row of joi choy (I have no idea which one joi choy ni). At the back end of the bed tu, in that balck pot is our mint.
And last but not least, our latest penyeri in the back garden. It’s just behind The Little Misses’ rooms so when they open their blinds at night time, they can see them…
Solar-powered dragonfly lights. I think they are so comel!
