Garden Share Collective: Favourite

I wrote last week about how gardening doesn’t come naturally to me, it’s effort, and often overwhelming. But there are a few things that I really do love about being out in the garden. And what better way to celebrate that than to join in with the Garden Share Collective and talk about my favouriteContinue reading “Garden Share Collective: Favourite”

My Gardening Philosophy

I love gardening. It seems that the older I get the more passionate I get about it. I’m not particularly good at it, but as my black thumb starts to turn a shade of olive, I seem to be developing a little understanding. The sun is shining and I walk outside, the chickens get fed andContinue reading “My Gardening Philosophy”

In My Garden… July 2015

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a garden to share, and while it’s not quite finished we are picking little bits and pieces to add to our meals. Each day I head out and check on the growth, I squeal with excitement when I see that our peas are tall enough to reachContinue reading “In My Garden… July 2015”

In My Kitchen… March 2014

In my kitchen… …a pomegranate tree waits patiently to be planted out into a pot.  A friend gave us this plant as a baby shower gift as a ‘delicious symbol of the work of women’s bodies’.  I was so excited to receive it and am now waiting in anticipation for it’s first fruit (which IContinue reading “In My Kitchen… March 2014”

In My Garden… March 2014

This is our whole garden haul for a day.  Pretty dismal isn’t it.  I’ve missed a few Garden Share Collective posts, and well, so has our garden.  Before Christmas I just couldn’t muster the motivation to plant, weed, turn soil or just be in the garden.  I suppose my focus was elsewhere. But thankfully, thatContinue reading “In My Garden… March 2014”

In My Garden… December 2013

In my garden things seem to be at either end of the spectrum.   This bed seems to be going better than some others.  The rhubarb has suddenly taken off, after many months of me thinking that it was gone to the gods, there’s a rogue tomato plant popping up, just on the right sideContinue reading “In My Garden… December 2013”

In My Garden… November 2013

We’re running out of room in our backyard for garden beds.  Slowly but surely, we’ve used up nearly every free space, pulling out just a few plants here and there, to make a little more room.  In the top of this picture you can see newly dug up areas that have just had seeds sprinkledContinue reading “In My Garden… November 2013”

In My Kitchen… October 2013

I love viewing into others kitchen’s, don’t you?  If you want to have a look at some others, head on over to Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, where Celia has collated all the other In My Kitchen posts. There’s not a lot happening in my kitchen at the moment, the focus has been in otherContinue reading “In My Kitchen… October 2013”

In My Garden… October 2013

We have heaps of exciting things happening in the garden at the moment, although to be honest we haven’t done very much to the garden over the last month.  Our vegetables seem to be loving the sporadic weather we’re having down here in good old Victoria, and have all started fruiting and being usable, whichContinue reading “In My Garden… October 2013”

In My Garden… September 2013

Not a lot has been happening in my garden over the last month.  I haven’t done any more planting, not too much wedding, but I am starting to see edible things pop up. Like the bulbs of the beetroot. These broccoli are getting huge, surrounding them is parsnips, beetroot, carrots and coriander. Sadly, our brusselContinue reading “In My Garden… September 2013”

The Garden Share Collective… June 2013

Lizzie, from Strayed From The Table, contacted a few of us, foodie/gardening type bloggers, with a brilliant idea.  The idea was to share our garden, once a month, the highs and the lows. It’s a link up that I was more than happy to join in on. Our garden is a very important aspect ofContinue reading “The Garden Share Collective… June 2013”
