Gardening Blairgowrie, Australia – We love composting. It’s so easy, eco friendly and our one small step towards sustainable living in Blairgowrie, Victoria – Australia. We own a tumble bin style composter – which simply means, all our vegetable and fruit scraps, leaves, tree cuttings, and lawn clippings get tipped into a the barrel. That’s it. It’s probably one of the most simple methods of composting, but it works for us.

We keep busy turning the compost and checking our worm farm. Ah the smell of rotting vegetables is so beautiful! Reminds us of traditional markets in Indonesia.

During these extraordinary times, we have planted the little seedlings and baby plants to find them turning into springs onion plants, pak choi plants, spinach plants and cauliflowers.

The other day, we spent the afternoon reconditioning our vegetable patch, planting rows of snow pea seedlings. We also refreshed some of our potted herbs – basil, coriander, parsely and oregano. We want to try eggplants and broccoli next.

The other afternoon, we harvested our pak choi for our Mother’s Day dinner. And, we cooked it with tofu. It was so yummy. Like a little surprise gift from our garden to ourselves.

Wishing health and safety to you all during these extraordinary times.
