Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 142: A meditation with the bees.

This video is very quiet and without much action….it is simply the bees. Please enjoy and use for your meditation or prayer. But, please, if it isn’t your kind of thing don’t watch it and don’t give a thumbs down and leave a negative comment….in my world it’s all about the love and the positive. Have a beautiful and peaceful day.

In the Kitchen: Fennel root soup experiment – free food!

I was recently informed that fennel roots are edible so I obviously had to try them out. I’ve never experimented with a recipe on camera before (normally I try experimenting a few times without the camera rolling to get it just right)…… this is a first……’s worth watching to the end. Was it gorgeous or did I spit it out? I was shocked.

Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 139: Compost, chopping leaves and hand tools.

During a super quick visit I managed to eke out a bit of compost to cover the last of my new perma beds…….and I had a go at chopping up leaf litter using a strimmer and a bucket…. I also remembered to grab a handful of the fennel roots, which I had dug out a few days before, to experiment with in the kitchen. Even if I only have a spare hour or two it’s worth a quick session in the garden at this time of year just for the light.

TIY: Make your own fabric softener and a toilet cleaner.

For a few pence and a little bit of time (on a grey day) it is so easy to make one’s own cleaning products…….and by making them ourselves we can massively reduce our consumption of plastic. Today it’s fabric softener and loo cleaners.

For the loo cleaner (bog bombs!) I used 4 cups of baking soda, 2/3rds of a cup of citric acid, 40 drops of essential oil and 4 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide – halve the amounts for a smaller batch if you prefer.
