Blooming gorgeous

Do you ever suffer from blogger’s block? I’m sitting here in the dining room staring out the window and wondering what on earth I am going to write about. Silly really as there is loads happening in the Bonner’s garden. It has been a bleak day and there is now a light drizzle .. daylight …

Keep smiling …

The trials and tribulations of gardening! Oh boy … Seedlings as you can imagine need light to grow. So in their quest for such they will bend in rather odd angles and grow spindly in the process. As I have learnt previously, Andrew’s man shed which is filled with blokey things like tractors and spades …

The Garden Share Collective

I would be lying if I said I wasn’t excited .. because I am. Really excited! Why? Well because this month I am part of The Garden Share Collective, a beaut initiative for bloggers by Lizzie from ‘Strayed from the Table‘. A monthly community of like minded garden enthusiasts who want to share their vege …

Veges and fruit

At last, I’m being particularly good and am updating my blog. Blame the summer, Christmas and having lots of friends over to stay for the sparse postings. Oh yes,  and blame Toi Toi wine as well why not! So NIWA said that we would have a long dry summer, and so far they are spot …

Spring

Before I launch into my latest garden update, I thought it only fair to say that Andrew is away on a surfing trip with the boys, and fair enough too! Me? I’m home with the dog, chooks, sheep, cats and the garden and loving it! The girls … Dan … busting to get outdoors. Typical …

Get those seeds sown

Last weekend was fab to get outdoors and do some serious gardening … Andrew had a massive day trimming pine trees on Sunday that were sited on the hill above our duck pond. The limbs he removed were huge, so no surprise that they were blocking out much of the afternoon sun. I suspect that …

Spring is on the way

Dan our dog … loves walks on the beach Yesterday was absolutely brilliant. The sun was shining all day … so inspiring, perfect day for gardening… I caught two of my chooks out of their paddock this week … they were marching up the hill from my garden beds. They looked very happy indeed – …

Bana grass and more!

Learnt a nasty little lesson today as you do. I got some bana grass cuttings from Shelly beach farm (bio dynamic) about 12 mths ago and then poked them in the soil behind our garage. They have grown like mad, which given this spot doesn’t get all day sun is amazing! I read somewhere that …
