Here we are, week #9 already of my Get in Your Garden! Guest post series. I love growing things in my garden, I find it amazing to see what a seed can grow into. I also get a great deal of staisfaction of being able to eat something that we have grown. So the week we are looking at some tips on tomato growing.
We all love days out with the family, but sometimes they can hit our wallets hard! Great family days out however needn’t break the bank. There are lots of things you can do that are fun for all the family that don’t cost the earth.
I’m not a huge fan of exercise, but what I do like is being outside and going on an adventure! We will often go on short walks with the kids or hikes through the countryside, and we love creating our own mini adventures along the way. Good footwear is paramount, no one wants a summer hike ruined by a nasty blister or me moaning that my feet ache! These Trespass walking boots were a complete god send.
After a week’s break from my Get in Your Garden! Guest post series due to the lurgy, we are back with week #8. This week it’s all about getting the kids involved with growing your own veggies, and this week’s post shows us that you really don’t need a large garden to do it.
I, like a lot of people, am trying to shed a few lbs for the summer. I’m also always looking for ways to get more fruit and veg in my diet. This green smoothie is a great start to the day. Quick to prepare, nutritious and delicious. What more can you ask for for breakfast!
As an amateur preserve maker, I seem to have a lot of these jam jar lids kicking around. I hate throwing things away so I kept hold of them hoping that one day inspiration would find me and give me an idea of what to do with them. Well inspiration struck and I decided to make these cute up cycled jam jar lid flowers to decorate a boring piece of fence in our garden.
Happy May Day! and welcome to week 7 of my Get in Your Garden! Guest post series. This weeks post is all about how gardens can get people and family together.
I’ve always assumed that it’s good for my children to spend time outside and in the garden, and I have encouraged them to participate as much as possible. I believe that it’s important for them to embrace nature and see how plants grow, and how they can give us food. Turns out there’s some science behind it proving what I have assumed all along.
