Super duper chuffed with myself - have grown hydrangeas, clematis and some daisies from cuttings thanks to some You Tube videos by Mike Kincaid - the guy is a bit of a gardening genius .... my makeshift hot house worked well for cuttings too! #sistemaplastics for the win there!! . . . . . #nzgarden #nzgardening #tuigardenandhome #queenofthecrop #gardening #plantpropagation #hydrangea #homegardening #plantsforfree #propagation #inmygardentoday #homegardenlove #nzmum #gardenlife

A good day in the garden - not an edible strawberry left (swipe left and you’ll see what I mean) .... and the Christmas goodness is looking promising with the help of my mini’s....Hubby was photog. today but is the muscle in the garden to build us strawberry pallet walls and pallet herb gardens etc. while the rest of us potter and enjoy our gorgeous gardens! @tuigardenandhome 🍓🍓🥔🥔🥦🥦🥒🥒 . . . . . #vegetable #familygarden #weekend #strawberry #strawberrypicking #iseered #mylittlepumpkin #familyfun #familytime #meandmine #prideofplace #tuigardenandhome #nuture #gardening #newzealand #familygardening #gardener #queenofthecrop #growyourownfood #kidsgardening #kingofthegarden #palletproject #palletgarden #palletherbgarden

Ahhhh looking berry berry awesome for Christmas desserts! Covered these beauties waaaayyyy earlier this year and so long as I can keep the kids focussed on raiding the strawberry wall these berries have a small chance (better chance than last year!) of making it on to the Chrissy Pav! 🍓🍓🍓🥝🥝🥝 ... feijoas are photo bombing to the side and just started their first flowers .. #whoopwhoop #queenofthecrop #tuigardenandhome #homegarden #raspberry #berrypatch #berry #berries #gardentotable #nzgarden #nzgardening #vegetablegardening #berrygood #berryberry #summergarden #pavlova #kiwichristmas #kmlnz #thinksocial #nzhouseandgarden

🌱🌱🌱Garden update for End of October! Definitely feeling the Queen of the Crop vibe with results in our family garden .... all of us have contributed and looked after the little projects and plantings - such a fun thing to do together!🙌🏻☀️ I’m super happy with the pallet strawberry garden (birds unimpressed this year as they’re well covered! - and we have strawberries ready to eat - 2 strawberries and already eaten by our 2 kiddos while I type this! Hanging Tomatoes🍅 well they’re hanging in there 😛😂🤣 .... it’s such a weird concept - and I do have two plants in pots to compare but so far so good - they grow like they’re trying to turn themselves up the right way - it almost seems mean to have them upside down....Potatoes 🥔planted for Christmas look like they think Christmas is in November - so I put more in the ground two weeks ago and they’re already sprouting while I recover them daily .... but I think it will get us eating great spuds for a few months .... the kids carrots🥕 looks awesome, broccolini 🥦looking good ....beetroot awesome and out of pic we have the kids growing radish and a cucumber🥒 - cucumber not impressed with changeable weather ..... oh and the oldest has grown pumpkin seedlings from seeds from the last family roast when we had pumpkin - I’m impressed .... now trying my hand at hydrangea cuttings - too early to know my success there but there’s never anything lost in trying!❤️🙌🏻❤️🙌🏻🌱🌱🌱🌱 (PS. Look back through earlier garden photos in my feed to see the difference!) . . . . . #queenofthecrop #tuigardenandhome #tomato #tomatoes #garden #gardening #tomatotime #gardener #familytime #homegrownhappiness #vegegarden #palletgarden #greenfingers #growyourownfood #christmasdinner #homegrownfood #tuigardeninghacks #potato #potatoes #upsidedowngarden #upsidedowntomatoes #kidsgardening #gardensofinstagram #strawberries #strawberryplant #palletproject #projects #upcycle #kidsinthegarden #thedillondiaries

As the holiday comes to a close this little moment is so perfect! Blessed to have kids that give every opportunity 💯%.....These fab kids have walked some great mountain tracks, walked high in a redwood forest, zoomed down a mountain on luge carts, seen bubbling mud, watched the ground burst with hot water, exclaimed their disgust at the sulphur smells of Rotorua, fished for prawns (catching not a thing!), seen coastline you only see on postcards.... They are tired, but have great stories to tell of this trip ❤️

Sticking with our trying something different gardening - we’ve moved the strawberry patch to a pallet garden and hung it on the fence beside the upside down tomatoes! . . . . . #queenofthecrop . #strawberry #palletgarden #strawberrywall #nzgarden #strawberrygarden #gardening #gardentotable #growtoeat #gardening #nzgarden #nzgardening #greenthumb #tomatoes#ediblebackyard #ediblegarden #tuigardenandhome #kiwigarden #nzgardener#gardengeek #thedillondiaries #familytime #getoutdoors #homegrownfood #smallspaces #spring #wallgarden #gardenprojects #loveyourgarden #wellingtongarden
