sharing is caring by propagation, my curry leaf tree & red lentil dhal

By

The coolest thing about this plant is that it was given to me by a good friend which was propagated by her good friend from the original tree. Sharing is caring people. Mine grew in a pot for about a year then got planted in the yard; fast forward another year and it’s mighty! It […]

the trendiest thing you can do with kale is grow it :: nero di toscana & kale chips

Kale appears to be so hot right now but it’s kind of been around for a while (like B.C). I don’t get too caught up with the latest “superfood” nor do I drink it from a jam jar with a straw everyday. I’m old school and believe in a bit of everything in moderation with […]

The planets have really aligned this time; the name (and chocolately colour) of this heirloom variety coupled with the fact it’s the perfect time to plant capsicums in my sub-tropical climate. I don’t know […]

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I can be a painful person in summer. I constantly complain about the heat and happily discuss weather conditions at length. And it kind of goes without saying that Brisbane heat waves do not make for happy times in the garden. However, unlike myself, the basil is thriving and I […]

This is a classy sounding carrot. As you know, part of my motivation in growing heirloom varieties is for visual pleasure; and I just think serving up round carrots will look cool. I also feel carrots can be a bit ignored by the general population. However, the carrot advocate within me is telling you they’re […]
