I bought a house on the Gold Coast in Queensland. I bought it because I fell in love with the garden. But I know very little about gardening so I have created this diary to help me grow and maintain my garden. To learn about the plants and what to do when.
I have never grown vegetables before. It is a constant fascination I am challenged by my garden, watching seeds sprout and seeing seedlings come to life and keep growing as you pick keepthin plants alive, dealing with pests, something is always going on in the garden.
Add to this the taste and goodness that come from food you have grown yourself.
I feel as I am learning skills I will use for the rest of my life.
Five months after starting this it’s a funny thing what is developing isn’t so much my garden though I have never had a garden like this before. It is my love for food and cooking that has come through.
Its vegetables I want to grow, I do want flowers but edible ones, and everyday thinking of something interesting to do with green and leafy is so much fun.
The recipes I am collecting here are my favorites, some my own, and others that I have collected over the years. Recipes for my family and friends.
So this is the gardening blog thats all about cooking.
