one for me please : raised veggie garden

posted on: Wednesday, July 7, 2010

For months I have been lusting (can you use that expression when talking about what is essentially a glorified flower pot?) after a raised veggie box. But when I asked the Baby Space man if he could rustle one up he said said we have too much else going on right now and what about that unfinished writing desk sitting in the hallway that I swore I was going to refinish? Pfft. And then what should I stumble across but this fabulous ready-made crate.

Produced by The Little Veggie Patch Co. these handy crates just need to be filled with straw and compost and they're ready for planting. They even provide a fully-prepared variety with pre-planted veggies for those who really don't want to get a speck of dirt on their mits.

Personally I think getting stuck into the dirt with the wee ones sounds fantastic. However this particular company only delivers in the Melbourne, Australia area. Maybe I'll settle for something like this instead:

The crates start from $95 AUD plus delivery from The Little Veggie Patch Co.


  1. That's a fantastic veggie crate! I think these are definitely worth it if you don't have time to make them yourself. The mister in our family is not handyman but managed to put a makeshift box for our veggies on the side of the house and it's fun to see our girl get excited over what's growing. Great product here!

  2. I know, right? And kids are way more enthusiastic about eating greens they've grown themselves...

  3. Oh, adorable! I bet you could make one, too, from an old crate and some stencils, these are much cuter, though! XO!

  4. Oooh yes.. I came across this company a few weeks ago.. would LOVE one of those crates for the garden.. melbournians get all the good stuff!

  5. have a look at these - not quite as stylish, but very easy to use!!
