Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 122: Carrots, beetroots and Spring Bulbs.

On a blustery, warm day it feels like Autumn is just around the corner……and so I begin to ‘tidy’ the kitchen garden and harvest the first of the carrots plus other ingredients for Borscht – soup season has begun!

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.

Thoughts on……Month 16: Positive breeds positive.

I am so happy to end this month on a much more positive note than last month. It takes a bit of work and self-discipline initially but getting into a positive frame of mind really is possible with just a few tweaks here and there……..and then the positivity gathers momentum…..

Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 118: Brassica nets and vegetable dyes.

Why is it always windy when I’m trying to put up nets? Hahahaha – I could really have done with a second pair of hands. Today was a bit of a go slow as I feel a little under the weather……a day for just a little gardening and  and rather more time talking to friends…..and learning a bit about vegetable dyes.
