Quick and Easy Vegetable Slice

Some days I love to cook up a storm. I spend the day in the kitchen, multiple things on the go at once and I can coordinate everything. These are the days where I feel invincible. I had one of those days last weekend. I’d cooked dinner for 3 days in advance, this vegetable slice […]

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 side […]

Broad Bean Pasta with Parmesan

J hadn’t really ever had a vegetable garden until we started our small plot here, and I suppose this also leads on to the fact that he hadn’t eaten a lot of vegetables straight from the plant.  This year I’ve been able to see the joy on his face as he watches things grow from […]

In My Garden… November 2013

I look forward to […]

Replanting

This season we’ve already got in the ground more than we ever have had before, a wonderful range to get us through winter.  I can’t wait to taste all the fresh produce growing right outside our backdoor. On Sunday we replanted our seedlings that we had planted into polystyrene boxes, as I mentioned here, there were […]

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 the […]
