Cooking and pottering in my vegetable garden are my favorite things to do, after spending time with my boys. I am not an expert in the kitchen, or the garden, but I am obsessed with feeding my family the best possible fresh food, home grown organically in our backyard.
I am a busy mum with competing priorities. I often feel like I don’t have enough time to get all of the things done that I need to do, let alone those things that I would like to do…
I understand that all mums are busy so I aim to provide practical tips to boost the productivity of your vegetable garden and inspire you with fresh healthy family meals, quick and easy to make.

Our vegetable garden consists of 4 raised vegetable garden beds and I am slowly working towards making additional areas of our backyard productive. My 8 year old loves to plant, tend and pick the veggies after watching them grow. He also enjoys being involved in the cooking of our harvest.
I hope that you will enjoy following my progress in the kitchen and the garden. I also occasionally throw in a natural Aromatherapy skin care recipe here and there based on my experience as a qualified aromatherapist.

This blog provides me with an outlet to share my love of a productive garden, seasonal food and family friendly food ideas. I hope to inspire you to start to grow your own fresh food, if you are not already doing so. Spend time with your family in the fresh air learning nature’s stories, be inspired to create new family meals from the produce that you have grown. Reduce your supermarket bills and experience the satisfaction, sense of pride and superior flavor of home grown food.
I would love for you to join me and start to grow fresh, cook fresh.
