The truth is not a lot! The garden this year hasn't received as much attention as last. I feel a bit guilty as the van suddenly took over our focus. We have had some fruit and vegetables that have done better this year and some that never made it at all. We had great success … Continue reading Whats Been Happening with Us?
Hello! Sorry we haven't written anything for a while, but its all been a little slow going. We have been doing our best to source new doors. All the doors are rusted through, and we have managed to find the cab doors and the back doors, but we still haven't found the side sliding door … Continue reading The Slow Road
We spent a few hours in the brief but enjoyable spot of sun doing a bit of tidying and thinning out of the various veggies, that had taken off because of all the rain. We started off by weeding the potato bed and planting the last of the seed potatoes. We used some Maris pipers … Continue reading A Quick Tidy Up
In our last post, Tony showed off his awesome creations for keeping pests and birds off our veggies. We have since been out and sowed most of the seeds for the veggies we going to grow this year. As we used the first large raised bed for the potatoes, we decided to mix it up … Continue reading Sunshine’s Out and Here We Go Again 😊
With this being our first year growing, and we had a late start due to the fact Tony and myself had to isolate separately in the first months of lock down, there were many mistakes that were made, and many plans that had been put on hold.

Some of our earlier plans were put on hold and unfortunately will probably stay on hold until next year now. With the weather being rubbish again all there has … Continue reading Peppers, Peppers and Oh Yes.. Peppers.
Wow what a scorcher today is! We’ve been tidying the garden up. Mowed the lawns and trimmed a section of the massive hedge. Pulled out some more small and unwanted bushes that were growing under the camellia bush. We’ve also planted the only 2 surviving cauliflower in the space where the onions didn’t grow. Now … Continue reading Just a Trim
We’ve not been doing anything to strenuous in the garden recently. The soil around the stumps needs to be dug out, but the moods really not struck me to do it. Sitting in the sun just watching things grow has been amazing. With all this glorious sunshine all the fruit and veggies are really coming … Continue reading Lazy Sunday
I had been thinking about experimenting with different edible plants and herbs, after reading up on all their incredible health benefits. I had thought about dehydrating the plants to make them into tea. After eating the nettle crisps a few days back, and reading up on all there health benefits, I wanted to use that … Continue reading Time for Tea
