Slow Garden Chronicle:  The Greenhouse

It was nice and sunny last weekend, so I spent a few hours tidying up the greenhouse. 

We picked the last of the tomatoes at Christmas, so I emptied all the spent pots onto the compost heap and put the empties away in the shed.   I swept up all the old leaves, dead bees and cobwebs […]

The Slowfix: Gingerbread

The Slowfix: Gingerbread

Do you have a Christmas speciality?   A recipe you’ve perfected over years; your go-to Christmas present for neighbours and teachers?  My Christmas speciality is Gingerbread.
