Cajun Meat Loaf

In the cold winter months there is nothing better than a nice meat loaf to warm us up. I hope you enjoy this as it was one of my restaurants signature dishes. 
 




Air So Pure

The quality of the air in which we live is essentially important to our health, our fitness and our well-being. Scientific research by NASA has shown that plants are capable of absorbing pollutants and breaking them down, cleaning the air.




Pansy Party

Through the coldest depths of winter, into the gentle warmth of spring Pansies will provide a delightful display of colour that's bound to warm the cockles of your heart. And if you happen to get peckish when out and about in the garden, you can even have a quick munch on the flowers.




5 Shrubs to plant for Winter Colour

It's been unseasonably warm, yet winter (in all of it's mildly damp glory) is coming. But while the ground is still warm it's a great time to get perennials, shrubs and trees planted, as it gives them plenty of time to get settled in, well rooted, before next spring.

 

So to help you take advantage of the weather, and get your garden looking great for the bleak winter, here are 5 great shrubs to plant for winter colour.




Quick Fixes for the Weekend

8 Easy Steps to get your garden sorted this Autumn 

Whether it's a total mess or just mildly out of sorts, here's a quick step by step guide to stop feeling overwhelmed and quickly get your garden spick and span.




Soil: a Matter of Life and Death

Soil is the permeable boundary between life and death, between the Earth and the Sky. The soil beneath our feet isn't just the inert and static remains of the weathered away Earth; it's actually a vibrant and dynamic ecosystem full of minute particles of rock, water, humus, complex colonies of bacteria, webs of fungi, and a whole host of larger creatures such as worms.




Feijoa and Bluberry Muffins

It's feijoa season and they are in abundance! It's at this time of year where almost every staff room will have a bag of these juicy fruits place in the center of the table, or a visit to your aunty is not complete without leaving with a mountain of fruit sure to last you to the end of the month.

Check out this great recipe to make the most of the most of these delicious fruits.




Grow your own Soil

 

Douglas Adams, author of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, once remarked that “It is difficult to be sat on all day, every day, by some other creature, without forming an opinion on them. On the other hand, it is perfectly possible to sit all day, every day, on top of another creature and not have the slightest thought about them whatsoever.”

He was talking about a horse, but I'm sure that if soil was sentient, the same could be said about being stood on all day.




Growing Feijoas

Before coming to these strange and distant shores I had never even heard of Feijoas. So when I first came it was with some trepidation that I tasted some of those slightly odd looking fruit. It didn't help that the person who introduced them gave a slightly exasperating description of what they tasted like. So much so that while I understood the words, I had very little clue as to what they were on about.
