My Garden.... My Treasure

The Wallabies are out the Rugby World Cup .....
(sad, sad, sad face)
.....but we must move on....

October Birdie Stitchery
these can still be found at Little Miss Shabby

Friday Night Sew In this week - I hope to get quite a bit done

Love you to join us... click HERE for details and sign up..


This week I am treasuring having a little patch that I can grow some fresh salad and veges.... 

and linking up with Melody's Tuesday Treasures

here is my lettuce, mustard leaves and little cherry tomato plants.....

the rocket has bolted but I have been feasting... I am hoping for it to self sow and keep me supplied....

large tomatoes .....

.... with baby tomatoes forming....

silverbeet and  beans with 
either gem squash or butternut, or cucumber, or zucchini... 
I planted a selection but I don't know which ones have come up!!!!  Luckily I like surprises!!

I am trying to avoid sprays and am making my own worm wee fertiliser and use the castings when I plant.... this is some of my working stock!! 

The mulberries are delicious
we had a short sharp hail storm so you can see the tears in the leaves

machine quilting has been happening..... 

Hope your day is awesome


  1. Your garden is thriving! You won't need to buy much salad stuff this summer.

  2. Your garden is really looking terrific , you have a green thumb ;-0 Love the stitchery , I didn't do that one but everytime I see it I think I should have . Your feathers are looking really good too! hugs

  3. Fiona what a wonderful vegie garden you have,you cant beat freshly picked vegies.

  4. Your garden is looking fresh and healthy. The birds got most of my mulberries but I did manage one mulberry pie ... yummm!
    Happy quilting :)

  5. Your stitchery is just awesome...

  6. The stitchery is lovely. Those Mulberries bring back memories of my childhood. I grew up in Rockhampton (QLD) and would visit my Grandma often in Mt. Morgan. One of Grandma's sisters had a HUGE mulberry tree, many a time we came hom with stained clothes, feet, hands and lips. LOL it was such fun....

  7. Your garden is definitely a treasure. Congratulations.

  8. Wonderful vegie patch Fiona....I am very green (forgive the pun) of your tomatoes. What nature provides is always a treasure.

  11. Great block Bubz, and I just had some mulberries for my lunch.....and I have purple hands...LOL...

  12. All your vegies look so healthy!
    I grew rocket for the first time last year in a pot without success, but am going to try just planting out in vegie garden instead!

  13. I just love the smell of freshly picked tomatoes. The shop ones don't smell the same. love the stitchery
