Winter Medley

~Citrus Season~







 Sweet potatoes

 And more




 New Life...Kale

Golden Delight Potatoes

Lots of Spring Onions...self seeded

Ginormous Rhubarb

 The Carrot Patch

Still enjoying capsicums


One last cucumber

 An eggplant has popped up

We have spare beds

Because of high water costs

Not sure if I am ready to let all this go


We have had lots of puddles

And full to overflowing tanks

Much needed wet stuff

40.5mm (1.57inches)

Keeping warm

Odd shaped eggs

Finished and gifted to a needy friend

 Some more crochet-ness

 A new project

 Have to find me a baby :)

Sweet Blessings from my home to yours,



  1. Looks like it's been a good season for you. We're just heading into summer here.

  2. Oh wow you have been productive. That winter garden is amazing. We have not had any really hot weather yet but I am dreading it. I prefer winters here. We are very dry here too with very little rain the last couple of years.

  3. Hi Tania,
    Lots of nice veges you've got growing there and yay for the rain.
    Cheers, Anita.

  4. That really is a productive crop and a reminder for me to get on with some planting. Looking forward to next long weekend and no plans that take me away from the garden. Great Photos too.

  5. Always busy, it's nice to peek in on your part of the world. Glad you've had that bit of rain.

    Cheers - Joolz

  6. Wow...so much goodness from the garden! LOVE the blanket, and the tea cozies! Love the white squares for baby too. And what...that water bill from previous post!!! Crazy....

  7. What a great harvest, glad to see you got your much needed rain. Your crafty projects look fantastic.

  8. Wonderful things from the garden! So happy to hear you got some rain. The blanket, tea cozy and hot water bottle holder are lovely and the new blanket is just lovely! LOVE the colors! Have a wonderful week!

  9. Your veges are awesome!!! I love the hottie cover. Do you have a pattern?

  10. You truly have a little piece of Paradise there Tania!
    Thanks for sharing pictures of your bounty!
    A big hello from the Paicific NW coast,

  11. Tania you produce such amazing fruit and veg in such a harsh climate. I truly hope you can find a way to keep producing, seems such a shame to let it go :(
    I absolutely love that hot water bottle cover!!! Your blanket looks amazing too, really pretty.
    Great post and photos :)

  12. I honestly can't imagine such a garden... just wonderful. And I LOVE the crochet hot water bottle cover. Do you have a link to a pattern?

    Blessings, Debbie

  13. Wow, you have been very busy Tania !! I love the crochet work and your veggies and fruit look wonderful.
    Have a great day.

  14. Hi Tania! The garden is looking great and your crochet is absolutely beautiful. I heard on the radio the other day that we'll have a wet winter over most of the nation. I hope you get some more of it. xx

  15. Hi Tania, I often check out the photos of your amazing garden. It is incredible that you can grow so much there. Pity about the water bill though but I am sure you are loving the rain now.

    Could you tell me if the red and white teapot cover was made by just joining up two granny squares? If it is, I think I can do that. LOL!

  16. Hi Nanna Chel, yes the teapot cosy is just two granny squares sewn together with some chain stitch for the ties.

    Easy peasy :)



Your comments really make my day. Thank you for taking the time and for being so kind.
