Do you love eating and cooking outside? We do! We obviously love having a great British BBQ, but also I have always wanted an outdoor pizza oven. I love the idea of getting friends over and baking bespoke pizzas for everyone, whilst they socialise on the patio.
This plum and port jam recipe makes a very versatile savoury and sweet jam. Equally at home on a cheese board as it is on a slice of bread. Pairing juicy plums with the rich, fruity flavours of Portugal’s famous alcoholic tipple, with subtle underlying spices.
How many of us moan about not having enough time in the day? I know I do! If you could palm something off, what would it be? For me it would definitely be cleaning the house. I’m sure I am not the only mum that feels like that, and Bidvine may just have the answer.
Week #21 of my Get in Your Garden! guest post series is an ingenious tutorial to make your own patio pallet garden, and the best bit is you can do it for free!
If your a regular to my blog you will know that I love to make jam, and I often enter it into our local horticultural shows. This recipe hasn’t failed me yet, winning first place in every class I’ve entered it in. It really does make a lovely raspberry jam.
Week #20 already of my Get in Your Garden! guest post series, and this week we look at how you can enjoy the feeling of grass between your toes even if you haven’t got space for a lawn!
This little craft was prompted again by one of our local horticultural shows. There was a class for a decorated wooden spoon for children aged between 5-7 years. We have decorated wooden spoons in the past, and the kids loved it, so Isla was really keen to enter. When I asked her what animal she wanted to turn her wooden spoon into, she of course said a Flamingo! Or mingo as she calls them, her favourite animal (probably because they’re pink!). So together we crafted this little wooden spoon flamingo.
Summer holidays are here, and barbecue season is upon us. All we need is the sun to shine, and then there is no excuse not to Get in Your Garden! and get the barbecue started. If you need more convincing then this post is for you!
