Adapt and repair what you already have-10th October 2022

This is a photo of one of my old compost bins. I bought these in about 2003 (?) at a local “buy everything home and garden” store.

Learning is one of the most precious things in my life and I hope to never stop learning so, just… Continue reading Cooking greens-2nd September 2022

Growing courgettes-6th August 2022

I have a summer love affair with courgettes, zucchini, summer squash…whatever you call it where you live. My garden never feels right without them in the summer and I always regret how many I plant. It is a lesson I just never learn. Well, it’s been worse this year than ever before. After years of… Continue reading Growing courgettes-6th August 2022
