In the Garden


Our garden is just bursting with all things growing at the moment, this little gem squash is almost ready.


Our Granadilla vine is heavily laden with fruit, it’s the best year so far, usually we have one or two fruits on the vine, this year there are about 10!


Cute little red peppers… love the shape


The grapes are also ready, they’re sweet and the birds love them too!


Butternuts are growing up the fences in our veg garden.


Our pretty Hibiscus is seldom without flowers.

Happy Monday!

Cucumbers and Squash

The wonderful ‘almost’ Summer weather has arrived at last, I think the frost is gone for now until next year and Kye and I have begun planting our Heirloom veggie seeds! It’s so exciting to see them grow. Above we have planted cucumbers and squash. They are almost ready to transplant into the veggie garden, I just need to order a truckload of compost first to dig into the beds.


I’ve also planted different varieties of peppers and pumpkins, can’t wait to see what they are like.

Jenna PL Award Scouts

Not the greatest photo quality, I know, but I only had my phone with me and we were sitting right at the back of the hall. Anyway, this is our Jenna receiving her PL (patrol leader) of the year award at the Sea Scouts AGM two weeks ago. We are SO proud of her!!!

Jen sailing

Here she is doing what she LOVES, sailing. She will soon be getting her own Miracle dinghy that she’ll refurbish herself for advancement at Scouts. So exciting!!

Hope you are having a lovely week.

Spring is such a glorious season! There are buds and flowers on most of the fruit trees. Life and rebirth are everywhere I look. I feel energised and excited to plant more veggies and flowers in our garden. We’ve also been filling the bird feeder with fruit and seed and various feathered friends have been visiting our garden each day. Jen and Erie have just started writing their September test series for School. Unfortunately the flu is still lingering in our home… we just can’t seem to shake it.

I hope you are enjoying the change of seasons.
