Our Garden

This is our veg patch this week, yesterday I harvested some garlic, onions and zucchini that just keeps coming and coming.  Anyone have any zucchini recipes? 

We've got lots of tomatoes coming up which we are very excited about, a few more garlics, silverbeet, beetroot, rocket, rhubarb, radish, pak choy, zucchini and lots of potatoes.  It's so lovely eating fresh veg from your own garden!

Do you grow veggies or keep a garden?

Our Weekend and a Fresh Start!

Hello, I'm back from my very long break, it was well needed and we managed to sort out a few issues and things that cropped up over the Christmas period and deal with a few things that had been lingering around all year.  I can feel already that 2014 is going to be a great fresh year and I am choosing to start my new year now, in February.

This year I will be blogging on a more regular basis and I have a plan of what I want to blog about and when.  We are unofficially starting homeschool kindergarten this year (today is the first day) and we are off to our first kindergym meet up and then lunch in the city with a visit to the library.

The topics that I want to blog about this year include meal planning, what we did on the weekends, homemaking/organising, craft, art, op/thrift shop finds, homeschool, our garden and anything else that comes up.  I hope that you will stay tuned and join us for these new adventures :)

To start with here is what we did on our weekend, on Saturday we stayed home all day as it was quite hot especially in the afternoon, we just hid inside with the fans on.  On Sunday we went to a local Chinese New Year festival and it was great they had free crafts for the kids, yummy Chinese food, entertainment, games and Master E got his photo taken with the Chinese dragon!  When we got home we were going to bake some sweet honey bread for Lammas, but it was just too hot to have the oven on so we may do some baking this afternoon.

How was your weekend? What did you get up to?
