Lazy Sunday

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

Ha-Pea in the Garden

After the terrible winds we had a few days back, our wonderful pea trellis came crashing down! Luckily the Sweetcorn hadn’t been planted out yet in the neighbouring raised bed. We have now put that back up and secured it with wood that is a hell of a lot stronger than canes and nailed them … Continue reading Ha-Pea in the Garden

How Does Your Garden Grow?

I went out into the garden today to have a look at what we had already started growing and to start sowing the rest of the seeds. I found the birds had started to scratch and peck in the raised beds and a lot of the peppers were ruined. Luckily I had spare pepper seedlings … Continue reading How Does Your Garden Grow?

Wild Garlic Goodies

This post is a little mix of garden and food. We usually like to keep the two subjects separate, but on this occasion we'll let it slide seeing as they are linked. So after seeing many many many post with various delicious recipes using wild garlic, and having never tried it before, I really wanted … Continue reading Wild Garlic Goodies

Going Potty in Isolation

I was asked the other day, when do you know when it’s time to re-pot a seedling plant? The honest answer is, I don’t know. I’m no expert at gardening and everything we have done is purely trial and error, or at least following some instruction that we have read or watched, using whatever we … Continue reading Going Potty in Isolation

We have been making some great steps in the garden recently. From the last post you have seen we now have the raised beds down, and broccoli seeds … Continue reading First Steps Towards Self Reliance

Mucking Around on Lockdown

After drying out the pepper seeds from the post Dig it, Build it, Grow it, I wanted to make sure I sowed them properly. I read up first, as I think I may have done the strawberry seeds wrong, so didn't want to mess this up. I created a mix of Compost and tea leaves, I … Continue reading Mucking Around on Lockdown

Dig it, Build it, Grow it

Today I lacked the enthusiasm for gardening, but I always find that I have to do a bit, I just can't help myself. But all week the weather has been glorious and today well it was so bloody cold! So what did I do today? It was time to turn the compost in the compost bin, so … Continue reading Dig it, Build it, Grow it

Sowing the Seeds of a Better Life

Firstly I’d like to say Hello and I hope your all well. Like most of you during this time of pandemic, I have been isolated due to my daughter being ill a week or so ago, following government guidelines I self- isolated for 14 days, for which the end is in sight. Still, I have … Continue reading Sowing the Seeds of a Better Life
