You Gotta Start Somewhere: The Kitchen Garden has changed a lot in 9 years

I just discovered some photoes of my 'garden' 9 years ago. That is,when it did not exist.Now, it is a jungle. Such that it is hard to imagine it ever being so empty.

Switch to the here and now -- and it's truly amazing -- albeit not as 'neat'.

It just goes to show- 9 years from sand to fertile soil and worms and full greenery.  An inspiration to others who feel it can't be done.  From grass to a food garden, well done Dave.

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
