some inspiring local gardens


The colourful flags look so cheery!

I went on a walking tour of local food gardens on the weekend – which resulted in me attempting to take notes while walking of new plant ideas (anyone heard of shisandra fruit?). I enjoyed peeking into other people’s gardens who were trying to do the same thing as me. So here are some pictures.


This family has converted their entire front yard to a combination of vegetables and herbs. In the poly-tunnel are sweet potatoes – which are already starting to set tubers.


Same yard as above with a view of their front yard chicken run (and more cheery flags). They collect water off the chicken shelter. On the right is a willow living arch over a sand box.


urban bees!
