Welcome to our very first Garden Bloggers Harvest Day this 5th day of January 2012. Our Two Gardens have excited and delighted us this past year and have also produced some incredible edibles!  We want to share with you what comes out of our gardens on this day each month that we can eat and enjoy! Lots of love and care goes into growing fruits and vegetables – so we would love to see what grows in your backyard.

Let’s see what can be harvested from Barbies Garden this month

Growing an edible garden has always been the ultimate plan when I took my first step into the back garden of our new home – veggies and chickens will find a place here. That was nearly 7 years ago and now looking out into my garden, I have realized this dream. What great joy it brings me to dig around in my garden today and pull out a bright red beetroot or a plump potato! Sheer will and stubborn determination got this huge veggie patch of a garden producing a wide range of fruit and vegetables.

Come and see what me and the chicken’s can find in the garden for you …
