My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hello again. Monday comes around so quickly, doesn't it? We spent a lovely weekend in Vancouver touching base with all the friends we haven't seen for a few months, which means we didn't actually get to have two of the meals on last week's meal plan. So I'm just going to add them to this … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Shopping My Pantry

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hello. Monday again! Well, I'm happy to say that I've lost 2 lbs this week. I haven't started Yoga yet, but that will be tomorrow (really!). I didn't get round to walking at all. My excuse was that it rained a lot. I had a chocolate bar over the weekend, but that was it. Still … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Shopping My Pantry

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Anti-Bloat Drink

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hello all. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. You may remember last week I confessed my undying love for chocolate. Well, I managed an entire week without chocolate (or any other sugar, for that matter) - except one teeny tiny bar on Wednesday. And I didn't even miss it! Amazing what you can do … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Anti-Bloat Drink

March In Our Garden – Operation Clean up Recommences!

Hello lovers of all things garden. Isn't that an amazing sunset? It was taken a few days ago close to where I live on British Columbia's Sunshine Coast. Just stunning. I just love Spring with all the beautiful colours. I can't believe it's been three months since my last post. With the return of winter, … Continue reading March In Our Garden – Operation Clean up Recommences!

My almost vegetarian life

Hello all. How are you doing? We're doing fine here. I missed the last couple of weeks as we went into Vancouver to see my 3 year old grandson who was visiting from Edmonton and got behind in household stuff and it's taken me until now to catch up! Well, we survived an entire week … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Delicious Breakfasts

October in Our Garden – Beautiful Sunshine, Fall Flowers & a Bear

Hello gardeners and non-gardeners (I'm sort of in-between), It finally stopped raining here, so I'm hoping my brussels sprouts will recover - they are looking very unhappy indeed. I took the opportunity to get outside and putter around. I harvested the rest of the tomatoes as it's getting below 10 deg. C at night here … Continue reading October in Our Garden – Beautiful Sunshine, Fall Flowers & a Bear

October In Our Garden

Hi everyone. I hope you're all well. Well, it’s been a soggy Fall so far which is really disappointing. When I look back on photos from this time last year, it was beautiful sunshine, crisp Fall days and evenings around the fire pit with hot chocolate! Our garden is doing okaaay, but not very happy with … Continue reading October In Our Garden

September in Our Garden


Even though Summer's almost over, it's not over for our little vegetable garden. The Nasturtiums are just beginning and our (free) tomatoes just keep getting bigger and bigger and more abundant unlike the poor old tomato plant we bought at the nursery, which has only produced 3 tomatoes so far from this huge plant. Not … Continue reading September in Our Garden

August in Our Garden

Hello all and welcome to smoky British Columbia. There are hundreds of wildfires burning all over the province and the wind blew the smoke in our direction. The smell of smoke is very strong and the sun is struggling to shine through the haze. We've had a steady stream of beans and peas these past … Continue reading August in Our Garden

July in Our Garden

Everything is thriving in our vegetable garden. I'm surprised because I'm not quite sure what I'm doing - haha. To read about our garden from the beginning, click here I fed everything with blood meal a few days ago and added a layer of mulch over the weekend to keep the moisture in and the … Continue reading July in Our Garden
