Gardening A-Z

I know it’s pretty easy and not too expensive to buy beans at the supermarket or farmers market these days. But I really enjoy eating fresh beans from the garden. They taste great and it’s nice knowing exactly what’s gone on them in the process of growing.

Green beans were a staple for many of us growing up (usually over-boiled with little crunch or nutrients for that matter!). The good thing is this traditional veg is just as versatile in today’s kitchen (think salads with a twist or Asian-inspired cuisine).

January - right smack bang in the middle of school holidays. Personally these are my favourite holidays of the school year. The weather is good, we usually take our longest vacation at this time, and the kids spend their days keeping busy outside.
