Making the hard chop In the old garden I used to have an amazing orchard.  There were about 30 now mature fruit trees.  I had the space, so I just planted what I wanted without too much thought and consideration.  Although I did have a ‘do or die’ philosophy, which is quite self-explanatory.  A tree would be popped in a hole and left to fend ..read more

Best Valentine’s Day ever! I’m honestly not sure how we are going to top this, and it all revolved around the garden.  I have been on a mission to showcase the vegetables I grow in the meals I make.  I’m a gardener well ahead of being a cook in terms of priorities, passion and ability.  I revel in bringing forth life from bare soil and ..read more

The giant list of things that need to be done. After yesterday’s declaration of good intentions >Yesterday’s post<  I took a moment to write down everything I need to do.  And now I see why I kept it in my head and just procrastinated as a coping mechanism…  It is a tad daunting.  But it is what it is, and is what I got myself ..read more

Good Habits start today. This is just a quick post and a public declaration, that I will be getting stuff done or be publicly shamed. The recent short weeks combined with a new ‘no back to school’ empty nest thing has really thrown the start of my February into disarray.  I feel like  I’ve been waiting for some kind of normal to kick in but ..read more

Heroes and Superstars. The garden has really been pumping out the harvest.  Everyday there is something new to deal with, on top of the things already overwhelming my harvest basket.  It can be so easy to just take yet another zucchini for granted or leave it languishing on the plant a little longer in an obstinate attempt to delay the inevitable, which ultimately results in ..read more

It’s over, move on. January is the strangest month.  It starts in holiday mode.  There is absolutely no expectation to do anything remotely productive, unless it is for personal gain, like indulging in a hobby.   And as the middle month of summer, it is – most of the time – too hot to want to do anything anyway.   I can’t cope in the heat, especially ..read more

Making a Shrubbery In the garden shrubs are generally considered the understated backdrop of the landscape – mini trees that provide the green and occasionally have flowers or fragrance but for the most part aren’t even noticed. In the kitchen shrubs are something else.  They are so amazing that once you make one you wonder why you’ve never done it before.   I am about to ..read more

Happy Anniversary On this day, 18th January, back in 2018 we were embarking on a great change.  We sold our house in the swamp and moved to the seaside.  To be completely honest it was moving from one challenging landscape to another, but what is life without a little challenge?   The last place was at that point where it was done.  The interior was how ..read more

Too Hot If you can’t handle the heat, get out of the garden.  We are in the midst of a heatwave.  It might not be the burning inferno that some folk experience in summer in other places, but it is hot for me.  In the last week the hottest the thermometer in the garden registered was 38°C yesterday at 6:27pm!  Surely the evenings are supposed ..read more

New Year is a state of mind. It is all very well to treat the new year as a fresh start when you are in between seasons like all the wonderful gardeners in the Northern Hemisphere.  The previous season behind them, with lessons learnt from the successes and failures and all the hope and expectation of a new season just around the corner.   While the ..read more
