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”

Grow Just One Thing

Spring has sprung, the sun is shining (sometimes), the birds are chirping and the bees are buzzing. And, as I do each year, I begin to feel the overwhelming pressure of getting plants in the ground to grow some spring/summer produce. You see, I’m an olive thumb. Not black thumb but most definitely not green. IContinue reading “Grow Just One Thing”

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”

Spring is coming to my garden

It’s been so fun to watch the garden flourish as the days have gotten warmer. I’m seeing the baby spinach and silverbeet finally stretch is arms, and grow, as though it’s been hibernating through winter. We’ve watched the broccoli bolt, even with these tiny heads. We have, thankfully, been able to add a small amountContinue reading “Spring is coming to my garden”

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 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… 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”

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”
