A day in the irish spring sun :)

Our beautiful 'baby' distracting me from gardening with her playfulness!

Do you need to borrow my shades? You know because of my insane whiteness LOL

Mizuna lettuce's planted out!
Saved from a spiderweb in the garage :)


Tea :)
Garlic happily in the ground after sprouting and growing some roots on the kitchen windowsill.
Cat excluder back on. Clouds rolling in. Time to head inside. Great day :)

  1. Ok, the Tim Hortons cup must have been from your travels to Canada?

    1. Haha from travels yes but not to Canada... I was toying with telling the story but since you asked! It was down in a place near Dublin, we were on our tour of every county in ireland to decide where we wanted to live. We stopped for tea (and internet) at a garage/cafe and the tea was £2.80!!! ($4.50!!!), and the service was terrible so I STOLE the cup!!!!!!!! shocking I know but was so funny at the time LOL

  6. You seem to have been busy. Do you mind sharing how to grow garlic. Do you jus use the normal shop bought bulbs. Would love to know.

  7. No problem :)

    We just buy a bulb from the shop (if its sprouting in the cupboard already even better!) And just set it in about 1cm of water for a few days, rinse out and break the cloves off into single pieces, some will have little roots already, at this point you can plant them straight out but we put them back into the tub all standing up on thier ends next to each other until they all have roots, another day or two, then plant out leaving the tip showing, I also like to break the dry skin open at the top to make it easier for the shoot to come out.

    That is just how we do it and it works for us, never quite like the shop bought in size or looks but they taste great and are no hassle to grow. I read that its the last few frosts that actually split the planted one into new cloves so if you plant late you'll just get one big solid clove - we did find that to be true but dont mind, tastes the same! Hope that helps :)
