    SPRING and other really exciting stuff

However, its September the 1st, and that means time for some fresh new stuff, and to come out of hibernation. Of course, my body was telling me I needed to slow down and rest, I just didn’t realise it meant 3 months of rest 🙂 Through what I have learnt in the past few years, I know that if my body is telling me to slow down-I need to listen. Stress, anxiety…

    I love my garden

    I have made a goal to grow the majority of my own food. There is something wonderful about spending time with the earth, growing food, and then being able to nourish your body with beautiful, nutritious food. Once uni is finished for the semester, I plan on creating a few raised garden beds in my backyard, as well as developing a compost bin, and possibly a worm farm. Currently I have a few select plants growing in pots by my front door, Mostly herbs, tomatoes, capsicum and beetroot. I took a couple of pictures because I love them so much! Growing your own food, is like growing your own money,…
