Fig tree is getting started !!! This is where I thank the previous gardener of this household - planting trees is often a ‘pay it forward’ sort of generosity!! . . . . . . . #fig #figtree #fruit #fruittree #foodblogger #backyard #potager #urbangarden #growyourownfood #fresh #organic #organicfruit #gardener #orchard #citygarden #locavore #gyo #figura #lovemygarden

Look!! - how pretty have @ginny.grant and @aamcphoto_ made my backyard artichokes look !!!! They are organic so when you look closely they are far from perfect - but they look utterly gorgeous here!!! It’s nearly artichoke season .... . . . . . . . . . #backyard #foodblogger #ediblegarden #organic #artichoke #globeartichoke #carciofo #urbangarden #magazine_food #gloobyfood #vegetarianrecipes #potager #kitchengarden #foodphotography #growyourownfood #permaculture #foodforest #instagarden #gardener #urbanorganicgardener #realfood

Delicious evening @bracu_restaurant this evening - a winemakers dinner featuring @craggyrange wines. This was my favourite dish and favourite wine. Free range chicken, veal sweetbreads & truffle terrine matched with Te Muna Road Pinot Gris.

A @giapokitchen throwback !! How many years have I been eating his ice cream? This seems so ordinary now!!! 🖤 #gamechanger

Fun afternoon @greatlittlevineyards showcase - talking to all the winemakers and tasting all (maybe not all but quite a few) of their wines - worth a visit for some really fascinating wines - tried a few blends and even a varietal that I hadn’t before - more pics in stories - including a label that can only be read near fire!!!

TB - Still feeling spoilt roses and rosè - both were gifted and both were delicious!! I could get used to this...

Hopeless at growing roses (and corn) so really enjoying these in my kitchen!!!

Not sure if you remember.... but a while back I posted a ice cream bean pod - which I opened (ate the good bit) but saved the seeds.... this is the outcome - I have 11 baby vanilla bean trees (from 5 seeds!!!) I won’t be able to keep them all but this never gets old for me!!!

I’m sticking with the spring flower theme today - Did you know that magnolia flowers are edible. I’ve known for a while and never done anything about it (spring time in the garden gets a little busy and well general life) I mentioned it somewhere on stories and @theveggietree was onto it (nothing like food friends on insta) - sorting out this recipe for her blog - pickled magnolia petals! Very easy - and instantly made me jealous - dashing out to the garden to gather fallen petals!!! It’s a very floral then slightly spicey flavour - if you can imagine a very rose flavoured ginger? . . . . . . . . . . . . . #magnolia #petals #pink #pickle #vegan #ediblegarden #foodblogger #foodblogeat #preservedflower #edibleflower #foodphotography #foodphotographer #homemade #homegrown #gyo #citygarden #backyard #trees #organic #organicfood #sweet #foodadventure #newtaste #preserving

Garden vibes!! Tip - the daffodils were the half price end of season bulbs from @thewarehousenz - and fresh mandarin juice - was a $10 tree about 5 years ago and produces about 10kg - they will both repeat this every year now for free!!! . . . . . . . . . . . #mandarin #daffodil #permaculture #foodforest #spring #yellow #gyo #citygarden #urbangarden #instagardeners #flowergarden #backyard #kitchengarden #juice #freshjuice #foodblogger #ediblegarden #wholefood

Working with what’s in season in my garden!! Little lemon curd tarts - best part was the pastry didn’t shrink AT ALL when I baked it - that makes it a keeper in my books @ilovefoodco !!! . . . . . . . . #lemoncurd #yellow #spring #pastry #sourcreampastry #ilovefood #foodblogger #foodphotography #foodporn #lemon #nzfood #artisan #afternoontea #sweettooth #bake #homebaking #daffodils #gifted #hightea
