Remember back here I told you about the little 'issue' we were having in the front garden? It turns out that the ol' chili and soap recipe worked a treat. For the past few weeks we have been eating fresh greens and herbs from our own soil. It feels fabulous to take the kitchen scissors out on excursions, letting them experience the fresh air and summer sun before bringing them back in with handfuls of rocket, lettuce and spinach. In the coming weeks we hope to harvest broccoli, capsicum, tomatoes, pumpkin and beans.
Our dreams of lush green grass and edible delights are rapidly extending to the back yard where we hope to plant fruit trees amongst playing areas for the kids. Watch this space (or fall asleep at my incessant rambling).
I'm pretty sure i have just issued a sincere 'smack down' to this lass. Hope it didn't hurt too much.
Also, i received the most beautiful package from my postie today- I can't wait to share the details with you.
