Welcome to my garden!
This is where I spend my time in Spring, Summer and Autumn and where my thoughts spend their time  time during those cold Winter days. We try to live from the garden´s produce - with additional purchases from local shops. We start with herbs, elderflower and leafy greens in Spring - some of which grow wild - and move on to radishes, more greens, carrots, zuchini, broccoli, pak choi and onions in the summer and tomatoes, eggplant, brussel sprouts, kale and pumpkins in the Autumn. Oh, and I almost forgot the fruits! We have apricots, plums, grapes, rasberries, strawberries, red currants, cherries and apples. Writing this is making me realise how much this garden gives us! And it´s not much work really - I spend about  2 days a week in March preparing the beds, turning the compost and sowing seeds. In April and May it´s only 1 day a week - weeding and planting plus watering every second day. From June until August / September all I do is water, weed and harvest and in October I spend about 4 days getting the garden ready for winter. A wonderful hobby that I enjoy and which also feeds us!

Take shorter showers to get greater advantage of green energy in your home! Heating hot water accounts for nearly 14% of the average household's energy use and that can really add up. Cutting down on the time you spend in the shower will be better on the environment and your energy bills!

Plant trees around your home. The trees will help provide shading for you home and therefore will help keep your home cooler in the hot summer months. It will not require as much air conditioning to keep it at your desired temperature. Since trees lose leaves in the winter, they will still allow the sun to come in and help heat your home during the winter months.play bazaar
Really many thanks
