Our little family is glowing to share that we are the new market gardeners for @gatheratcoriole and have started a new organic market garden to grow crops to supply the restaurant, which already supports a number of local, organic farmers but we are filling the gaps in needed produce so that they can be 100% local!👌🏼
We’re also giving the kitchen garden at @coriole vineyards a lot of loving so that folks can see how much beautiful, diverse food can be grown in small spaces, as well as filling it up with all sorts of edible flowers, medicinal garnishes and native foods.
Now I loosely say “we” but it’s totally @brettyyoungie‘s gig (proud of you love!) and Millie + I just get to come along by association, helping out on “good days” when my health allows.
Still, I’ve had A LOT of fun tracking down and ordering all sorts of interesting heirloom seeds - heritage varieties of potatoes, beans and radishes in all their glorious colours, shapes and flavours... (very excited for “Cranberry Red” and “Burgundy Blush” - bright red flesh potatoes!)
And we’ve been really hustling the last few weeks to break ground, prepare soil, set up irrigation + farm infrastructure and urgently get planting before the big heatwaves of summer come.
It’s been a very different pace for our little family after a couple of years of navigating so many health challenges but welcoming it (exhausted bodies and all) and grateful that this work is so close to home, keeps our family together and will help provide for us in a way that keeps us working with earth and soil and good food and community.
Just generally celebrating this aligning after all that we’ve been through as a family and looking forward to sharing more along the way.
And so we grow!

Chocolate chiffon bundt with speculoos, using pure Canadian Canola oil. Had a great time last week attending another informative session sponsored by @canolaeatwell and hosted by @erin.macgregor. We had the lovely @jasminebakerlife show us all how to make mini chiffon cakes and Jeannette @farminginpearls share a moving story about her family’s journey with their canola farm. Merci. ✨ #canolaconnect

STRETCH MARKS ON #PEPPERS - If peppers get them, don't be self-conscious about yours! 😜 #Corking is a scaring on the skin of peppers that happens quite often on late-season peppers.⠀
It's caused by the interior tissues of the pepper growing faster than the skin grows, causing it to rip and then scar over. This happens after heavy rains, or in peppers left too long on the plant.⠀
Here in the USA, groceries wouldn't accept a pepper at this stage due to its aesthetic value. But in other areas of the world and amongst pepper lovers, corking is often a clear sign of a mature pepper with complex flavor. In fact, at Mexican markets corked red peppers often fetch higher prices than uncorked green ones, which are sold to sauce makers.⠀

Hey everyone! As we are less than 5 weeks away until Christmas🎄(eeeek!!), we thought we could all help give the local independent shops and businesses a boost by spreading some festive love.
Independent businesses don’t have millions of pounds to spend on a Christmas marketing campaign every year like some of the big businesses do, if we want to help them this Christmas then the best thing we can do is tell as many people as we can about the fab locals we have in and around MK.
Please share and spread the word (and use the hashtag 👇🏻) and tell your friends and family about the great local shops on our high streets.
Let’s help and support our local independents this Christmas!
Thank you for your support in advance 💚
