In the Garden


A lovely weekend has passed, we rode our bikes and spent time with our friends. Jen wrote her physical science test today and she seemed to be quite happy with it. Erin started crocheting again this weekend and has made the cutest headband but I’ll share more about that in another post. We did sit together in the sun today, she was crocheting and I was knitting, it was really lovely to spend time together and just chat.

These are a few of the harvested Souties squash that we’ve grown this year. The smaller ones are very tasty but the large ones are basically empty and have hardly any flesh inside unfortunately. Oh well…



Our sweet Delilah never misses an opportunity to come outside with us to see what’s happening in the garden.

Kye in the Garden

Kye picking his carrots that he planted. He’s working on a gardening badge for cubs.



Our mielies are mostly finished too, so Caiden was pulling out all the dead stalks. I really love it when the children join me in the veggie garden.


I also had a tiny visitor in my kitchen yesterday….

I have a lovely link to share with you, it’s a cover of the song Say Something, here it’s being sung by Pentatonix, so beautiful and the only musical instrument they’ve used is a cello!

Happy St Patrick’s Day♥

    Such lovely photos! That song is my current favorite, sung by Alex & Sierra the winners on the X-Factor here on TV.

    It is awesome when children get out in the garden. I probably got more excited than I should have when my grandchildren actually ate the microgreens we had grown…. it is not that they even ate a full serving of vegetables, but they were green and they liked them! that music clip was fantastic – what talent!

    Lovely squashes. Do you ever carve jack o lanterns? Wrong time of year, but it might be an amusing thing to do with the large squashes.
    Not being from Africa, I had to look up miele. I’d love to see what you cook from it.

      Hi Cath,
      We haven’t carved jack o lanterns, that’s actually a good idea seeing we’re heading into Autumn and we can’t eat the larger squashes.
      We just remove the mielies (corn) from the plant and boil them up in salt water, smear butter all over them, add more salt and eat. Too divine:)
