The Little Veggie Patch Co are good at getting people growing! Their approach is based on doable ideas , a straight forward approach and then upcycling where they can. They have approached gardening in a very visual way. Their book, the 1-Minute Gardening is a photo book with text which gives you tips and ideas. I was lucky enough to get a copy of it as a present for the Christmas before last. The main point to this video is you can grow vegetables anywhere. You do not need a huge amount of space. In one of my homes I was growing veggies in the wall box on the front patio while I was setting up a big veggie patch in the back garden. In my current home I am rejuvenating my veggie patch and growing some veggies and herbs in pots . Parsley grows around my back garden. It’s green, attractive and can make a nice pot plant! I like to have fresh herbs and I like to have fresh vegetables. I have mixed success with the vegetables but I never give up. I grow silverbeet and potatoes because they always work and fresh potatoes are lovely. Grow what you can because even if you don’t immediately become successful it is a very relaxing activity and gets you outside. There is a lot of evidence now that gardening has a good impact on your health and wellbeing.
Lila is quite amazing. She is tiny but very natural and confident. You can see she loves what she is doing and very good at it. Young children can be taught to master things at a very early age. They love things like skiing and swimming but Lila Kalis likes drifting. Her Dad has supported her willingness to learn and she has shown just how normal it is for a child to do something which involves skill and action. I am wondering why she doesn’t need a helmet but maybe those little cars are very stable? Her father knows a lot about these things and so does the driver who was working with her. Not work. They were playing together ! They were having fun and doing something skilled and demanding without it seeming like it. The father said he was not pressuring her and you get the impression he really isn’t. His daughter probably loves what she is doing because he loves what he is doing. Passion for something is infectious.
