Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 144: Jobs for January, shed tidy and Sweet Peas.

It’s the perfect time of year to get on with some maintenance jobs: cleaning tools, pots, greenhouses, fixing fences and leaking shed roofs etc…..and sowing just a few seeds to get things kicked off. I’ve never had any luck with sweet peas but that doesn’t mean I won’t keep trying.

Vivi’s Kitchen Garden: January Garden Tour (2019).

I’m trying to contain my excitement at the beginning of a new growing year…..the garden is so peaceful just now, almost asleep, a quiet has descended and the weak winter sunshine barely makes it over the tree line……it’s a beautiful time of year when we can dream of all the possibilities our soil might give us.

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.

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.
