Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 124: Bean arches & planning next year.

Normally the transition from summer to autumn leaves me feeling a little sad. Not so this year. I am excited by all the harvests still to come and the prospect of rejigging the garden a little to make life easier in the future. All the building I want to do is done so it looks like this winter I will be able to relax some and simply tinker in my space……I can’t wait.

Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 123: After storm Ali – harvest rescue.

We may have only caught the tail end of Storm Ali last week in the South East……but we still had some damage. Other jobs in the kitchen garden are on hold for now while I make sure I rescue as much of the harvest as possible…..and hope that some things will continue to grow and come to fruition in a few weeks. It’s hard to imagine the bad weather now that we are basking in warmth and sunshine again……

Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 119: Helping my mum in her new garden.

My mum recently moved house and has a garden again (instead of a tiny yard) after 20 years so I was really happy to go and visit with her to give her a hand. The garden didn’t have a single plant in it three months ago…..I’m amazed by how much she has managed to get going in such a short space of time. Planning the vegetable garden is so much fun.
