I can’t believe it .. I should go and stand in the naughty corner. Did you know that It is nearly 3 weeks since I last posted? How bad is that?
Anyone would think that I have been busy .. 😀
Truth is I have been busy in the garden – spring has finally kicked in and the weather has been gorgeous. I’ve had fun times hauling out spent vege and prepping beds with loads of organic matter, think Bokashi bin contents, coffee grounds, composted horse poo (crawling with worms, yummy stuff), homemade compost, rok solid and then tucking the lot in with pea straw. Did I tell you I’m in heaven? LOL
The garlic has really started growing the last few weeks – I have even spotted the first flower poking skywards. The garden is still stuffed with leeks, monsters now and our orchard is boasting an array of fruit. Sadly the peaches have the usual yearly leaf curl, and I’m behind in spraying seaweed brew. Eek, another job.
We have been harvesting our stunning broad beans and then eating them in just about everything. Have you ever had them in pasta with clams, chilli, garlic, spicy sausage and wine? I have and I didn’t cook it either. Hubby is a star in the kitchen ..
I have seedlings busting to get planted into the salad garden.
Poppies which are self seeded and looking glorious …
And my brother is here again … it is so nice having that extra pair of hands in the garden – I’ve told him about ‘sitting down on the job’ though ha ha.
We worked at Taste of Auckland last weekend .. a great event where Auckland’s top chefs prepare their favourite dishes and then serve it to the hordes of kiwi visitors .. it is literally a food and beverage extravaganza. Fun in the sun ..
Top drop that Toi Toi 😉
I’ve been weeding, feeding and giving pep talks to my garden …
