The Potty Gardener with Fancy tomatoes
14th August, 2015
Why garden in gardening clothes? My expectations of all things to do with gardening are changing. If you don’t have to have a garden to grow your own fruit and veg, you don’t have to dig to grow potatoes, carrots don’t have to be orange (see previous blog) and tomatoes don’t have to be red…or smooth… or even taste of tomatoes, then you don’t have to look like a gardener to garden. If my tomatoes can dress up and pretend to be something else then so can I.
The Potty Gardener's Purple Carrot Recipe
31st July, 2015
I was so excited by my first harvest of such beautiful specimens that with the speed and greed of Peter Rabbit I immediately munched my way through the first two, mud and all, savouring their flavour and satisfyingly carroty crunch.

CaneToppers for the Potty Gardener

I subtly suggested to Grandpa Haxnicks that some Cane Toppers would be the perfect moving in present. Subtle suggestion turned to pleading request and the cane toppers duly arrived on my doorstep. Popped on top of the wind wobbled canes ( a hair-raising job for me! ) they are helping to add stability and a little more style than the scrappy bits of string that were holding the canes in place before.
