  • Covered everyone up as it’s hot the next few days here. Lots on the agenda today, want to wrap all the presents, get a bit of editing done (wedding photography) and squeeze in a nap with bubs 🤣

  • It’s still pumpkin season! With the cold weather, savory roasting the late season pumpkins from the yard is a perfect side dish to whatever protein we’re making! Recipe ⬇️ below.

Recipe:
Cut your pumpkin into 1-inch cubes. Toss with oil & spices. As for how much spice, for each 2 lbs of uncut pumpkin, use 1 T olive oil, 1 tsp each salt, chili powder and garlic powder.

Arrange in a single layer on baking sheets and bake 30-40 minutes at 425 degrees, tossing halfway through, until tender. Garnish with fresh flat leaf parsley.

終わりにしようと思いつつ
花弁が薄いので開きにくいバラが
こんな表情を見せてくれると
庭で咲いている姿が好きなので
なかなか切れないんです

このバラも2m越えだし
後ろのランブラーの暴れ様たら‥
脚立の上に立つのが怖くなったので
このランブラーは椿に登らせ
来年から自然に任せようかな

  • This lovely old rosemary standard was my grandmother’s.  It spends summers outside getting rained on and feeling the breezes, then overwinters in my plant room. I admit, I fuss over it.
.
My granny was an incredible plantswoman...like, Tasha Tudor level of incredible (and I regard TT as nearly a goddess.) Despite her vast knowledge, when I visited as an adult, she’d always bring  me outside to ask my advice on various plant questions... It reminded me of the way she let me win at checkers when I was small.
.
Something about this plant makes me okay with getting older.  With any luck, I’ll be a kick-ass, knowledgeable old lady, some day.❤️😎

  • Elevation ⠀
Blimey how this year has flown by, I presented my last design of the year today!⠀
(I’d love to fit in another, but my first op is next Friday!)⠀
As the garden is on a gradient looking up from the kitchen with a height difference of over a metre and a half from the kitchen to the back of the garden. I included this elevation sketch of the garden from the house looking out, to help the clients visualise the pergola they wanted. ⠀
Due to the tall windows in their new extension and the height difference to the first terrace, their pergola will have to be taller than normal at patio level, with narrow profile uprights. Then it needs to clear 2.5 metres at the top of the steps, so it doesn't feel like they are bashing their heads when they walk up. I also wanted it to frame the garden view, whist giving shade on the windows without feeling like it’s hemming them in. ⠀
I used Sketch Up, a design software tool to quickly resolve the pergola upright heights and garden levels. Once I was happy with the design elements, I hand drew this sketch so I could make the planting as realistic as possible, without it taking me a month and a trillion gigabits of RAM.⠀
In my opinion nothing beats a hand-drawn and rendered sketch. I could never get a CAD sketch to create the range of planting, accurate borrowed views and remaining garden features that I can from working from my own imagination. Plus I was able to render whilst I watching the legendary episode of ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ with Danny Dyer…..best TV EVER! Did I mention I have the best job ever!!⠀

  • 💦 Curious to learn more about rainwater harvesting? With awesome input for frequently asked questions to address from you folks, "Rainwater Collection Systems 101 + FAQs" was just published on Homestead and Chill 👍🏼 Follow the link in my profile to the blog 💙
.
💡 Did you know that it is possible to capture up to 623 gallons of water from a 1000 square-foot roof in just a single 1-inch rainstorm!? 🤯 We realized this pretty quickly in the first rain event with our modest 140 gallon tank so we added a 530 gallon slimline tank, and then another... 😂 We now have about 1300 gallons of rainwater storage capacity here. But folks with more frequent rainfall (or smaller gardens) may not need such large tanks. See, it ONLY rains here from late Nov-March, and is totally dry the rest of the year. Meaning, we have to capture as much as possible at once since there won't be any refills on the way for a long time. In addition to offsetting some of our water use, our plants and compost teas LOVE the chlorine free water! 🌿
.
🌧 Anywho, come read long to learn the basics of rainwater harvesting, including tips for setting up and using a basic rainwater collection system at home. This article covers rainwater tank options, supplies, and how to assess what type of system may best suit your climate or needs. We’ll go over frequently asked questions – such as rainwater collection laws, water contamination and bacteria concerns, mosquito breeding, how to keep rainwater tanks clean, prevent algae growth, options for hand-watering vs pumps, and more. 👌🏼
.
Enjoy the old video of our garden from early 2018... when the pollinator island plants were just babies, we had a short front yard fence, and before we added the second 530 gal tank!
.
🏡 Keep in mind there is a similiar 101 article all about setting up and using a hobby greenhouse on the blog too ✅
