Hugh's Place

I began writing about my son Hugh's adventures into vegetable gardening, on the Hills and Plains Seedsavers blog. It all began about this time of the year, back in 2008..... I think. Now he is not just a wonderful chef but an incredible food grower as well.

Here's what we had to work from back in 2008... wall to wall concrete.

Look at it now!

Remember this from April 2009?

Well look at it now! The little rockery and water fall surrounded by so many herbs and veg and just out of view are 3 different passionfruits climbing over that tank.

String reaches from the soil to above the windows and up it grows the peas. From inside it is so pretty. What a great idea.
