Update: A little message

My updates and posts have been lacking on this blog lately. I blame it all on being a little too busy. I started an English lit. course at uni in September which means I don’t always have as much time as I would like to both garden and prepare posts for this blog.

Despite this being the case, I am still able to get over to my kitchen garden and to keep on cooking whenever I have the opportunity – homework and a little bit of lack of daylight ain’t stopping me from doing what I love!

Also – crazily, as I have just moaned about having not enough time to blog – I have started to set up a baking blog: Bella’s Baking.

It will be a blog I post on now and then (most definitely not setting myself the challenge of making it very regular at this point in time) but it will be a blog dedicated to all types of cooking in the kitchen, mostly baking, while I reserve this blog still for anything associated with the garden. Please, if you like cooking do care to look at Bella’s Baking when I have got it sorted. Any support for these blogs is really appreciated.


Thank you for your attention to this blog, all followers are adored. Isobel.

South East of England. Family owns pets: dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, kune kune pigs (not for eating) and bees (that we never get any honey from). I am vegetarian because I have never liked the taste or texture of meat but my family do eat it so I will be including meat recipes on this blog. I work in our vegetable garden alongside my mum. Our dream is to be self-sufficient. I hope that this blog inspires, informs and is found interesting for any readers. I will be discussing anything to do with gardening, growing, working on the land and food, including recipes as I go along. Please feel free to ask any questions relating to the blog.
