Our garden at our new house is of course nothing like our beautiful landscaped garden at our old house, but it's well established and just the right size so that we have a little bit of space, but not too much to look after.
One thing that I really hated leaving at our old house was my veggie boxes that Aaron had built after we moved into our old house. I knew that I could have a veggie garden at our new house but I was so sad having to leave something that Aaron actually built for us as a family.
The day that our new house settled my amazing friends Annette and Kelvin came to our old house and dug up a couple of our special trees and bushes that the new owner of our house gave us permission to take with us. I hated having to leave my whole garden behind, but it was nice being able to bring a couple of special things that Aaron had planted after Noah passed away.
They replanted them at our new house and we were hoping that they would survive the trauma of being moved even though it was summer. Amazingly they have. I can't wait for spring and summer to see them flowering again, knowing that they were orginally planted by Aaron.
Nettie and Kelv are amazing gardeners and knew how much I loved having a veggie garden. A few weeks after we moved they grabbed me at church and asked me what I was doing the following Saturday. I told them that we weren't doing anything and Nettie said 'we are coming around. Kelvin has got a couple of raised garden beds he'll put together and we will get your veggie garden ready'.
I was so happy to know that I could still have a veggie garden and that it wasn't going to take ages to get one together as I knew it would be a lot of work for me to do it on my own.
The next Saturday they turned up with the boxes already put together and a ute full of soil and pea straw.
