in the autumn garden...



This season in the
urban garden I have planted-

beetroot
pea- greenshaft
onion
leek
garlic
great lakes lettuce
mustard greens
dandelion greens

herbs and spices- (some from seed and some bought as seedlings)
lemongrass
parsley
oregano
thyme
chives
capsicum salsa
capsicum karneval


All this beautiful sunshine, cool weather and heavy rainfall has really seen my little seedlings flourish. So much so, I planted another round, this time just sprinkling the seeds onto the ground and covering lightly with a fine soil/sand- they opened up in a matter of days- ah the beauty and wonders of nature!

We are already enjoying the sweets and spices from the herb garden- can't wait to harvest some of these autumn/winter vegetables!

Your garden is amazing! We've only got our herbs in at the moment, hope we haven't left it too late for the rest!

I just read the idle parenting link you have. Very interesting and I absolutely agree with it. Our children play so well by themselves and make up amazing games on their own because we haven't used the TV as a babysitter or done much in the way of afterschool stuff. Thanks for the link! P.S. your garden is going to be wonderful!!

what a fabulous blog you have! You have inspired me to give up on my potager garden - it has been raided by possums, scrub turkey's and small children, but I really want to grow my own food! Looking forward to seeing how your garden grows...

Thank You for stopping by...
Your eco friendly blog is wonderful.
Your garden choices are perfect!
I so enjoyed scrolling through your space and love your organizational skills...ie. Pantry.
Your efforts at striving to be green are commendable.

I shall surely look for "The Little Prince" as I have 10 sets of eyes and ears that would enjoy that book! along with myself.
I am gladly following you to keep abreast of what your up to!
Happy Sunday my new friend,

Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment! Be warned - once you start looking for shadows, you become addicted - even my husband looks for them now .... and then there are also reflection shots!!

I've quickly found that one of the best things about starting a blog is finding other cool blogs like yours! I am honestly impressed by your kitchen cupboard - sounds silly, but it just looked so ordered and all those spices mmmmmmnnn...:)
