  • Flash back to when we decided to use pineapples for our centrepieces! 🍍
  • Met with the lovely team at @acsdistanceeducation today along with their Director John Mason. John has a wealth of knowledge and hands on experience in the horticulture industry and is super passionate about educating youth in horticulture disciplines. I was also lucky to walk away with a few of the books he has written. I already had two at home so got to add these to the collection! Stacey 🌿
  • Picking the first ripe figs for the season! 
They may not grow as abundantly on the Gold Coast as they do down south but they taste so amazing I think it's worth it if you love them and have the room.

Anyone else say "thank you" out loud to their garden for everything they pick? (It's a lot of "thank you"s when picking cherry tomatoes!) - Leah

  • Kids in the garden 💚
  • One of my plants in the garden at the moment is the Panama Berry. This one was planted in Feb and just started fruiting in December.

Growing and eating different fruits and veggies is great, but I'm often disappointed after trying to grow something for ages and then it doesn't taste as good as I had hoped.

Panama Berry is described as tasting like caramel fairy floss... and it actually does! Best of all it's supposed to fruit for most of the year (not in the coldest months). Makes a pretty shade tree too.

What's your favourite plant in your garden right now? Leah
  • We found a giant Russian sunflower 🌻 growing in a friends garden that was twice the size of Pippa's head! Stacey .
