My mother in law used to play underneath the apple trees in her grandparents’ orchard when she was just a small girl. She remembered there being loads of lily of the valley, growing abundantly, sheltered by the trees. The orchard is long gone, but she still has some lilies. And now a few of them are growing underneath our apple trees.

It’s becoming a ritual : us complaining about the red veined sorrel. But this year, we’ve made a serious attempt at getting rid of it.

We’re up for a summer drowning in berries. All our bushes *except the blueberry* are heavy with flowers and buds. How about you? How are your berries doing?

‘Tis the season for pulling weeds and liberating the poor strawberry plants underneath the sea of bittercress and chickweed.

Spaghetti squash looking a little leggy…. Time to give them a little bit more personal space.

See these wooden boxes (no, we are not keeping bees)? We plan on making small greenhouses and planters for our squash and such. Any DIY tips?

Aesthetically pleasing. Never thought I’d say that about compost and soil.

This brassica is called ‘daubenton cabbage’, or ‘eeuwig moes’ in Dutch. Before greenhouses and cold frames, it was one of the earliest cabbages, ready for harvest as soon as February. This is our first one, and I’m not sure if I’m a fan. Maybe it will grow on me.
