How to get healthy roots
I just love seeing how healthy and vibrant the root systems of my plants often look. Healthy roots are the very foundation for getting good quality vegetables in the end, so make it a priority!
My winter sown cabbage
My lovely cabbage plants look great this year too! The trick is to winter sow them in the polytunnel. I look forward to harvesting my beautiful winter sown cabbage soon!
My flowering peach tree
It's so beautiful! The tree is still quite small so I need to come close to really enjoy the lovely little flowers. My favorite color is pink and needless to say, I get plenty of it from my flowering peach tree.
It's time to start harvesting my overwintered lettuce! I get at least one big bowl of many-colored leaves every day. Such a luxury! Overwintering lettuce is the key to getting such an early harvest. This is how it's done.
Our life in the garden: Outdoor play
I just love seeing my kids play. Especially outdoor play is so beneficial for kids and I get to watch them enjoy it firsthand in my wonderful kitchen garden.
Best time to take lavender cuttings
Propagating lavender with cuttings is surprisingly easy, and I get really good results too. Lavender cuttings are of course free, which just makes it even better!
Time to sow parsnip in my garden
This time of year is all about parsnip in the kitchen garden. I harvest last year's sowing and sow parsnip seeds in new little clusters.
Citrus flower tea
All you need is one of these little flowers! This is how you make the most out of your morning, with citrus flower tea.
Moving my Vorbote 3 to the polytunnel
The first little Vorbote 3 cabbage plants are thriving in my polytunnel. I count on that I can start harvesting here in April, even though it's still quite cold outside.
Harvesting my windowsill vegetables
My secret to getting early windowsill vegetables is choosing the right varieties and sowing early. This is how I do it!
