Moroccan Spiced Carrot Dip.

Got a few excess carrots?

This might be the way to go!

'Moroccan Spiced Carrot Dip.
Roasting carrots intensifies and caramelises their taste, which works beautifully with this collection of sweet, sharp and spicy flavourings. Serve this dip as a starter with warm pittas, or as part of a colourful mezze spread with a beetroot dip and a red pepper and cherry tomato dip.'

Toowoomba Camellia and Garden Show.

Looking forward to this, this weekend.

If you're at a loose end this weekend why not make the trip up, over or out and check out what is becoming a nice gardening show/event.

My Veggie Garden will be there but only as a visitor.

Hope to see you there.

Mini Me

My 'mini me' version of a Charles Dowding no dig veggie gardening.

Though Charles has been at this for several decades I've only just discovered him via YouTube. I'm guessing at about the same time he also discovered YouTube and started posting videos of his no dig gardening approach.

I've also managed to sneak in a small experiment here too. Using two different brands of compost. one being Hortico Compost from Hortico, no less.

The other is Osmocote Professional Compost & Soil Improver from Scotts.



Love to hear from you, leave a comment ot question below.

PowerFeed for the winning.

 I've had self sown Borage growing in this same spot of the garden for years now and I've never bothered with it very much except to let it do its own thing.

This year I decided to do things a little different, mainly to see what the results would be.

When I say 'a little different' the only thing i changed was to give it a weed and to add a regular weekly dosage of Powerfeed by Seasol.

While I was expecting a general improvement in the growth and health of my Borage, I'd have to
say I'm more than stunned at the results of regular weekly feeding.

They have easily doubled in their overall size, now over a metre tall, and they look positively luscious from their health and vigor. 

So the overall message from this post for me is PowerFeed for the winning.

It's getting better all the time.

It's been a pretty good Winter so far. There's been dribs and drabs of rain, enough to get sown seeds up and no need for any extra irrigation save for a watering can here or there.

The winter solstice has been and gone and with longer days and shorter shadows I'll soon have reclaim enough garden from the shadows to start planting again.

I've made a list and will be posting shortly what is being planted in the not to distant future.
