Well Spring has definitly sprung here in Sydney and I am mucho excited. I love love love being able to grow my own food!  Presently I have Sweet Corn, Zucchini, Boysenberry, Rasperry, Tri Graft Apple, Tri Graft Stone Fruit (Peach, Plum, Nectarine), Lemon, Limes, Rosemary (2 types), Carrot, Basil, Corriander, Leeks, Lettuces, Tomatoes & Chilli’s.  I have a zillion more things to come!!

There has been lots of planting going on…

The fruit trees are in flower…

I’ve even convinced Himself to help me with a teeny little bit of pruning….(lots more to do..see those trees?  They won’t be there for long!! – where’s that chainsaw??)…

Everything looks sad and small right now, however its amazing how fast things grow in this warmer weather…the corn has shot up an inch in 2 days!!!

Happy Harvesting!!!

    I’m holding out for the day I have space to grow my own food! It looks like so much fun – not to mention rewarding and delicious!!


      It most definitly is! There is nothing better than popping out the back for fresh herbs or something to add to your meals. Its also a lot healthier for your grocery bill!


    Wont be long and you’ll have lots of gorgeous things to eat. Ithink they always taste better out of the garden!


      I know – and I can’t wait!!!
      Somehow it never fails to impress people that their dinner was alive in my garden hours before they ate it:)
