Well this year in our Garden we are doing Tomatoes Galore! We have over twenty different variety's to try. So we are preparing our soil, and have started some of our seeds in the green houses. Must admit that I am most excited to see the heaps of them have popped there heads out of the soil to say Hello!

The children Love watching seedlings grow, as do I! It makes eating the end product so much more rewarding. Putting that food on the table and knowing that I am giving my family the best that I can. Also knowing how packed with flavour and goodness, makes me smile inside and out.

The blossoms are starting on the trees to show that winter is nearly over, and there is work to be done. Our garden walls still need finishing and bed's need organising, where are we going go to grow all this food?, and how? is the questions that we are working out now. Our aim is to grow as much of our own food as we can. So the Raspberry canes are in and starting to sprout, Strawberry are settling in to their new home near the front gate. Blueberries, pineapple Guava, Mulberry tree, Apple trees, Pear, Peach, Lemon, Lime, if only we have apricots....are still a few years away from reaping the fruits of those harvests. So looking forward to it!

How are things working out at your place?

Have you started your seeds or still waiting for a few more weeks?

Spring is nearly here and I can't wait!

Happy Growing!
