What fun that we both love gardening. Thanks for joining me.
1) Beauty and the beast
"You can tell what kind of gardener you are by your tools... trowel and trug mean you're a primrose and sweet pea sort; wheelbarrow and seed dibber mean you're a potato and marrow person; concrete mixer and socket-set mean what you most like to grow in your garden is a fourth-hand Ford Sierra."
See all that nice messy green and red stuff?
That stuff is good. That stuff is really good.
That's called Salad in a Jar... see recipe at the end.
Raring to grow
The FAQ section is the place where the beautiful people hang out... earthy and raring to grow.

Eco gardening tips
Sure you can... have an awesome garden!
If you'd like to simplify your gardening by knowing when, what and how to plant, I'm willing to bet this garden planner will be a hit with you, like it is with me.
"I know WHEN to plant, I know WHAT to plant, as well as a load of tips and tricks! I'm now into my 2nd year of this planner, and like an excited kid. I'm experimenting with some of the suggested veges for my area, will let
you know how I go. One happy vege grower in LA."
Salad in a Jar
I took this half pint jar to a friends to add to her lunch she was making for us. She still mentions it each time we talk, she loved it so much.
Note: So handy, so cool and leak-proof! Anything can go in — tomato, broccoli, cucumber, sunflower seeds, mustard and so on. Make several jars and use each day. Crunchy cabbage, grated carrots, beetroot etc slightly soften as they marinate in the dressing.
Preparation: 10 minutes
