Its a new year and we've once again been absent for a while, hibinating like bears. We haven't been up to an awful lot over the winter, but we're hoping thats going to change in the up coming months. We decided to have a little jaunt in Trevor the Motorhome at the end of January, … Continue reading Its Nearly Spring 2023!!!

Garden Tidy Up
The other day I looked out of the bedroom window and actually cringed at the mess the garden was in. As we had had most of our veggies and fruits for the year, it had been left and ignored and I felt so disappointed with myself. There was the raised bed cover that we hadn’t … Continue reading Garden Tidy Up
Finally Producing Produce
It has once again been a while since we posted anything. I have meant to write so many times and have hundreds of pictures on my phone that have never ended up on here. We have now been enjoying all the goodies that the garden is now offering, and really enjoying cooking meals that have … Continue reading Finally Producing Produce
Stumps be Gone
Ahhhh those dreaded stumps. We have been trying to get rid of those tree stumps for years. We wrote about trying to remove them ourselves back in February and March 2020 on post Planning and Planning Some More and Not All Heroes Wear Capes and had no success. The tree stumps three just proved way … Continue reading Stumps be Gone

I really need to be a bit more consistent with writing but honestly life just gets in the way sometimes. So please forgive the pictures being a bit out of date.

We have blossom on the peach and nectarine trees and the other fruit trees are starting to bud now too, and the great mark of spring is the … Continue reading Spring has Sprung
Andddd…. We’re back!
Happy New Year!!!! We have disappeared off here for a while. In truth we lost a lot of motivation and got stuck in a bit of a negative mind set, especially myself. I think last we wrote was that the van had gone in for much needed welding. Well he had it for over a … Continue reading Andddd…. We’re back!
Whats Been Happening with Us?
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?
New Potatoes Baby
We finally got our first batch of new potatoes. We decided to dig up 1 row of the first early’s that we planted, to see how we got on this year compared to last year. This was last years whole crop: This year we had the large planter that we filled only with seed potatoes … Continue reading New Potatoes Baby
