vegan banana cake

I was going to call this an epic failure when I checked the first one out of the oven but...I put them back in the oven and tasted another one after 10 mins. I took them out and was ready to give up but...I went back and tasted another one wondering if they were all this chewy. Then...one by one they disappeared. All I could see were big smiles all around. I guess not so much an epic failure after all.Recipe here...Don't... be fooled by the refined sugar free. It has loads of sugar in it. In…See More

"Good looking garden, Valerie,  that is a fantastic idea for the chickens.  A movable pen could be good for the girls to clean up certain areas as well.  Nice tucker as well, hope you enjoy. "

April at The Gap

Weather has finally cooled down and a bit of a break at work means I give the garden my almost full attentionBed 1 got a facelift in time for summer, with frame and shade. Now planted with rescued cherry toms from facebook share page in the Gap, spring onions, parsley. Bed 2 has more advanced volunteer cherry toms. I planted celery, which is still alive but I don't argue with volunteer tomatoes.…See More

A mild december, early new year

Posted on December 26, 2016 at 21:30 0 Comments

Considering the weather is holding on to a very mild gardenable temperature with steady drizzle and tomorrow is the most favorable time to plant fruit in the garden, it's a good time for early new year resolution to clean up the garden. Photos to come.

Spring in The Gap

It's good to be back in the garden. A bit of TLC is really starting to pay off. Only a few weeks ago the dwarf mulberry was covered in ants and scale. A good brush, feed and regular watering and it is positively weighed down by plump fruit all over.…

March at The Gap

I decided it was time for a clean up. I don't like clutter and I have been feeling like my garden has been highjacked by a pumpkin vine and madagascar beans. So Garden got a haircut.

Thanks very much for the lovely afternoon Valerie-Ann.

If you could bring plate to the Christmas garden visit that would be great.

Also please thank Rhys for the hose which will come in very useful

H Valerie jerusalum artichokes would still be growing and not ready for harvest yet and it may be hard at the moment to find   any rhisomes. to grow You may have to wait a while winter perhaps .One place worth a try is Kenmore village in the fruit shop although they may be in the same predicament..Good luck

Welcome to the Garden Visit group Valerie-Anne.

Keep an eye on the Calendar within the group to see where visits are planned for the year. I also list them in Events as some require RSVP.

Addresses for the visits are sent out the week before via email to your actual email account (whatever you have provided to the BLF site) - they don't turn up in your Private Messages.

Let me know if you have any problems. I'm happy to help :)
