  • Strawberry Steps
    on Jan 28, 2011
    Whilst the majority of our fruit and vegetables seem to be enjoying some kind of relaxing suburban holiday in our garden, the strawberries are quietly but confidently buying up prime real estate and rapidly moving in.Being far from adverse to the lit...
  • Chilli Tea
    on Jan 26, 2011
    As we are Australian, yesterday, along with the rest of the country, we had a barbecue.I'm pretty sure it's illegal not to.We went with some friends to a barbecue area in a national park just up the road, and of course we all brought along lots of lo...
  • 26 Days of Planting: D is for Dill
    on Jan 25, 2011
    A very good friend of mine, when she encounters something she doesn't want to hear, will puff up her teeny little chest and with a great expulsion of air exclaim, "BORING!".This boring of hers is quite hilarious, and has the added bonus of proving ma...
  • A-Z of Emotions
    on Jan 24, 2011
    I could not get to sleep last night.I lay awake for hours, just quietly, thinking about the morning. Thinking about what it meant, about choices I had made, and about what I was going to have to let go of. You see our eldest boy Luka was starting sch...
  • 26 Days of Planting: Q is for Queensland Arrowroot
    on Jan 23, 2011
    Pretty plant, isn't it?Yep, veery ornamental. It was on Brisbane Local Food that I learnt you could eat this arrowroot. It's been in our garden for longer than we have, and I'd always called it Canna Lily and thought it was purely ornamental. I got s...

    This is the front path that leads from the front gate, to the front steps, to the front door of our house.It's not very beautiful.Not only is it not very beautiful, it's also set in a dip which forms a lovely little swimming pool for the enjoyment of...
  • 26 Days of Planting: N is for Nut
    on Jan 20, 2011
    Peanut to be precise.I am marvellously excited about my little peanut jungle here, but to be honest, until I read about them in the book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, I had no idea how they grew. In a dusty recess of my mind there was a vague image of...
  • 26 Days of Planting: E is for Eggplant
    on Jan 19, 2011
    What else could I plant for the letter E than my old nemesis, the eggplant.Technically I didn't exactly plant this one today, rather I replanted it in another spot, for obvious reasons. Once again my efforts have failed with the humble eggplant, but...
  • I May Be in Love with Bob the Builder and What I Did with the Mulcher
    on Jan 18, 2011
    The other day I had my leaky roof repaired. As predicted, the rain in Brisbane has now stopped, although I have been informed that this is but a temporary reprieve. When I tried to argue that my roof no longer leaks therefore further rain is unlikely...

    This, is a Chocolate Habarnero Chilli.It's hot... really hot. So hot that if a capsicum rates zero on the scoville scale, this baby can get up to 385 000. So hot in fact that I am a touch chicken of this chilli. I am also a little chicken of how to a...
