Imagine this .. I’m in the veg garden the other day watering my lovely plants (and talking to them as I do). I’m spraying the potatoes and it’s about 5 o’clock. I would much rather water in the morning so the leaves can dry – but sometimes it’s not always possible. So while hosing I …

Time for something new …

I have been following a wonderful blog in the US called thekitchensgarden.com The blog has been created by the lovely Celi who is a kiwi girl living in the mid west, a passionate farmer, an amazing photographer and writes prose that is often magical. She has an avid following … I was so surprised when Celi contacted me …

They come and they go

Today is another gorgeous day. Perfect to be outdoors in the garden (not in front of the computer Julie!). Summer has been amazing but I’m looking forward to autumn, there is a chill in the air at night and it won’t be long before those trees will be shedding their leaves peppering the ground in hues …

Summer rain …

Oh wow, in a blink January has gone – and what a hot, dry month it was too! Still, before it left the skies opened and we received a few days of much needed rain. Nothing like a good soaking provided from above. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly the place greens up and …

Sassy summer

I’m sitting at our kitchen table. The doors are wide open – it’s been a hot summer’s day. Birds are cheeping away merrily outdoors, the sprinkler is on and jets of water can be seen splashing over the lawn and flower beds. Blog time … tap, tap, tap on the keyboard. I zoomed around our veg …

Surf and Turf

I guess to anyone that reads my blog it is understood that I’m a bit of a nutty gardener, who adores her chooks, loves composting, worms, growing soil and smelly homemade fertiliser brews. I don’t wear heels anymore, but live in my gumboots.  I’m super passionate about photography and can now admit that until only …

Hello summer

There is much happening at Frog Pond Farm … Sally has gone clucky and is storming around the place ambushing the sheep and performing circus acts on their backs. The chicks who are now mini hens have been discarded by their mum Gladys and are now having to ‘tough’ it up in the chook world. …

Goodbye 2014 …

My last post for 2014 … Our summer garden is doing nicely as you would expect. The zucchini plants are pumping out long green shafts on a regular basis, we are digging up and eating purple heart spuds daily, the cucumber is doing a brilliant job of climbing over everything in its way (I’m still …

A Kiwi Christmas

I’m hanging up my gardening gloves and ditching that spade for a couple of days, time to concentrate on the Christmas Day festivities that we have planned. A special night with our neighbours … fun, food and some nice beverage, Toi Toi of course! No garden ramblings this post … but a few local pics …

Cats, climate and coffee

I’m sitting at my usual spot at the kitchen table, my fingers are dancing on the keys of my laptop .. tap, tap, tap. Outdoors the wind is howling like some mad dog .. craving for attention.  I glance over my shoulder. Our pines and poplars are being whipped into a green frenzy .. It’s summer right? You have got to …

Herbs are wonderful and Medicinal Herbs are a joy to grow, garble and use. As I start a new herb garden I hope that together we'll grow in our knowledge and love of herbs, sharing the joys of planting a new garden and the wildlife that share it.
