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”

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”

Growing Rosemary From A Cutting

For the last 2 years I worked at a local high school tutoring aboriginal students one on one (a state initiative called The Wannik Education Strategy).  Although I generally had a full timetable, sometimes these students would be absent, or refuse to come to tutoring and sometimes the teachers would ask that they stayed inContinue reading “Growing Rosemary From A Cutting”

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 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”

In My Garden… August 2013

It’s been a joy to come home to our garden!  Being away for 5 weeks, I wasn’t sure which way our garden would go, either it could have all been eaten or it could have flourished.  Luckily, the later was true! This garden under our window sill, houses beetroot, silver beet and brussel sprouts.  IContinue reading “In My Garden… August 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”

Our Backyard.

I’ve recently been asked for a backyard tour from some readers.  It’s tricky to know about the best way to share.  So the above picture is a panorama, it’s slightly distorted.  On the far left we have our arches.  In the garden bed they are attached to, there are tiny seeds just breaking through theContinue reading “Our Backyard.”
