Halfway through the school holidays and many of us are looking for activities for the kids. How about testing out how green their fingers are? There is a lot that can be achieved with a pot, some soil and a few seeds. What would your potential little gardeners like to grow do you think? At this time of the year there is still lots that you can plant now (check out the @rhswisley
guide for what you could be planting now) and enjoy over the winter months. One of our favourites is a cut and come again spinach, it's great for a ghoulish green sauce for pasta or for popping in a smoothie. Or if you've got a budding florist on your hands you could pick up a tray of tiny winter pansies and watch them grow over the coming months, providing some much needed Autumn colour in the garden. @suttons_seeds_plants
and Johnson’s both have some great gardening kits and packs of seeds aimed particularly at the younger gardener that can be grown almost anywhere, what are you waiting for? After all that fresh air it will be the perfect opportunity for a #macaroonmoment
with a cuppa, while the kids tidy up! .

If you're a fellow gardener then you'll know that we're well and truly in the season of plenty from the garden. We're currently mid courgette glut, and are being bombarded with berries here. I'm busily coming up with inventive ways to keep on top of the wonderful abundance of produce from the garden, with recipes to follow later in the week on the website. I'd love to hear about your ways of dealing with a glut of produce too! As a nurse I've always advocated that eating fresh food, that hasn't been messed about with, and has been grown to organic principles is best for a healthy diet. As a mum I also love to share gardening with my daughter and ensure that she's in touch with where her food comes from and what it takes to get it onto her plate! This week follow the Nourish garden journey and find out more about why, how and where we garden.
Have a berry nice morning 🍓
