Hello world!


First post how exciting! So i’m just going to upload and post whatever has happened through our day or week and see how it goes.

Today when I went out into our ‘Back to Eden’ inspired garden, I noticed that the radish seeds I planted five days ago have shot up so fast

Radish seedlings. Shoots from seed with 5 days, thats amazing for an Irish summer climate! Wet and chilly.

We also picked just over 1kilo of strawberries from our patch, that’s about 10euro’s worth here, and they were just yummy.

I also made pizza for lunch with our kale, so simple yet so tasty, I got the recipe from The river cottage collection, Veg Every Day recipe book.

Kale Pizza

The ingredients were, onion, garlic, fresh basil, kale, cheese and of  course a pizza base of your choice. Soften the onions, garlic and kale in a little oil, and place on the pizza base. I also saved some fresh kale because I like how the fresh kale crisps up in the oven. Season, add fresh basil, garlic and cheese and place in the oven. Ready to eat in 15mins. mmmmm.

There is only one good thing about the rainy summer days here in Ireland, is that it gives me and the family an opportunity to completely blitz the house clean and to get rid of any junk. It feels so much better, lighter, fresher. A  job well done. It’s not 100% done yet. The small school room is the last room to be tackled.

And now the evening sun has appeared and the little ones are playing with the water in the garden. Time to have a little fun after a hard days work!

Enjoying the evening sun
