I’m going to go ahead and blame my baby brain/mummy brain/ general lack of sleep… I’ve just planted the most adorable little veggie and herb garden with my biggest adventurer.

As I stood back to admire our work it slowly dawned on me that these plants will be dead in less than two weeks… And not just because I’m a terrible gardener (which I am!). Yes, I’d totally forgotten that we are going away on vacation next week and no-one will be here to water my lovely new plants. So tips please – how do I keep my veggie and herb patch prospering while we are away? Any green thumbs out there?
