Embrace nature: Create your own garden vegetable patch

By James Brown

With warmer weather on the way, chances are you'll be spending a lot more time outdoors and in open spaces. If you're lucky enough to have a garden attached to your property in Burpengary, now could be a great time to consider creating your own fruit and vegetable patch. 

There are a number of benefits, with the most obvious being a source of your own food with can be picked, harvested and eaten at any time of day or night. Furthermore, there are environmental upsides as well, providing you with somewhere to dump compost from your home – creating a recycling spot for all your food scraps and other organic waste. 

When it comes to creating the patch, there are some things to keep in mind. For example, vegetables need to have six to eight hours of sun exposure every day – so be sure to find a nice sunny spot in your backyard to help facilitate growth. 

Furthermore, you need to have the time to water your plants generously every day. This is especially true in Australia, where the climate means plants are more likely to dry out extremely quickly in the summer heat.
