In the Garden…

Hello!

Our Butternuts are ready, the vines have started to die down and we’ve begun harvesting! Richard and Kye planted these towards the end of last year. We had an old trampoline pit from years ago, we filled it up with compost, grass cuttings and horse manure and planted seedlings. They’ve done so well!

The potatoes are almost ready, just a few more weeks to go.

Ahhh, these have been my favourite so far! Buttery and delicious!

We also tried growing black tomatoes, full of flavour! It’s really exciting to be growing our own food again, the price of veggies is astronomical at the moment, so I get such a sense of accomplishment and pride when I walk out into our garden and pick food for our table. I’ve also sewn wheatgrass seeds in trays, we’re going to start juicing again as soon as it’s ready, I can’t wait.

The rains have come! We are still experiencing a drought but the Vaal Dam is about 65% full. We’ve been collecting rainwater under our downpipes, I can’t believe how quickly the drums fill up and we are recycling our grey water.

And… here’s a photo of Lou ♥

Have a lovely week x

A Trip

Hello,

I really appreciate all of your comments and for your visits to this space. Life is incredibly busy now and the days are flying by. I cannot believe it’s almost Christmas, it seems that I have just packed up all the decorations and now it’s time to take them all down from the cupboards again! I was grateful to hear from a few readers who were missing my posts. I will be posting more often and really enjoy sharing here and of course love hearing from you. I am also posting frequently on Instagram as Mamma4earth

We’ve just returned from a lovely holiday at the beach. We haven’t been for a while, it’s an eight-hour drive in the car but was worth the trip.

I spotted a bluebottle on the beach, they are beautiful.

Kye and I found some scoured out rock pools that had tiny ecosystems living in them.

Everyone enjoyed the beach, I really wish we lived closer.

knitting

I’ve been enjoying knitting on the Blue Light Hat. It was originally designed by Kerstin Olsson in 1959 and was updated by Solveig Gustafsson in 2008. The shades of yarn are breathtaking when combined in their respective rounds. 💛✨ Kye has seen it and has already claimed ownership.😊

Discovering windmills is my absolute favourite activity when we’re on a roadtrip.

Found some stunning seaglass on the beach…

sunrise

I took this photo of the sunrise at 4:45 am the morning we drove back, it was beautiful and the sun disappeared into the clouds almost instantly.

Just a few photos of our sweet cats, how different our life would be without them. They are such characters and are too adorable for words. Charlie’s the ginger and Delilah’s the tortoise-shell. They rule our house… I’m sure all cat owners will understand… 🙂

Do you have cats? What are they like?

It’s a Cat’s Life

Just thought I pop this ‘photie’ onto the blog to brighten up your day. When all of us are rushing around doing daily chores and school, Charlie’s relaxing on the kitchen couch just doing what cats do…

Hope your day is a good one.
