Country Life Experiment | Simple Country.. by Jo@countrylifeexperiment - 5d ago

Not long after we were married, C and I took a year off work and backpacked our way around Europe. I taught in London, while C picked up temporary office work where ever he could. Most weekends and every holiday was spent travelling around England and Europe. In the process, we developed a love of exploring...

Country Life Experiment | Simple Country.. by Jo@countrylifeexperiment - 2w ago

At long last, it is cold here! The fire is going 24/7 and the farmhouse is cosy warm. Outside, the trees have suddenly turned colourful and are scattering their leaves. On Friday it was snowing (!!) on the way to work, and we’ve had a little rain at the farm; though heaven knows we need...

At last, it is starting to feel a little like Autumn. The mornings are cold and the days are not so hot. It’s been a crazy Autumn so far. Hot and dry. Around these parts, most people light their fires by ANZAC day (April 25) or even earlier. This year we still have not lit...

You guys! It’s almost finished! I began this hexagon rug almost as soon as we moved back to our farmhouse last July, and throughout the winter and spring, I knocked out a couple of hexagons whenever I had the chance. Last year I entered a striped afghan blanket in the local show and the year...

Country Life Experiment | Simple Country.. by Jo@countrylifeexperiment - 1M ago

ONE I picked up these gorgeous tile trivets when I was in Sydney last week with Hannah. We went to see Ed Sheeran concert last week  (we gave her the tickets for her birthday in December) and took the opportunity to spend a few hours wandering the city and exploring all the things we can’t...

Country Life Experiment | Simple Country.. by Jo@countrylifeexperiment - 2M ago

Well, the seasons have officially changed! The sun is coming up later each day, and although it isn’t cold yet, there is a chill in the air in the morning and evening. In the garden, the vegetables are ripening quickly and although not all our crops were a success, we have more than enough fruit...

Oh my goodness! All of a sudden we have been inundated with fruit from the orchard and vegetables from the garden. While it hasn’t been a great year for everything (I’m looking at you cucumbers and cherry tomatoes!!), we are inundated with fruit and vegetables needing to be eaten or else processed and stored for...

You guys, I have begun half a dozen blog posts in the last few weeks, and then they sit there in my drafts folder and go no further. I don’t know about you, but the summer holidays have whizzed by, and I’ve been back at work for a week now (insert sad face). I’m taking...

The summer harvest has started, and I’m once again the proud owner of oversized zucchinis. Seriously, you only have to miss them in the garden for a day and suddenly you have more than you can possibly need. Zucchinis are a vegetable I can take or leave. They are great for bulking out mince, but...

Summer holidays really are the best time of the year. We’ve had Christmas at the farm with all my family, followed by a week up the coast with them again. Now we are home and enjoying some downtime. I’ve had some breathing space which has got my brain ticking over with lots of different ideas...
