My Secret Garden Update


If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.

~ Marcus Tullius Cicero

Hey, Lovelies!

Another happy update today – my secret garden on the laundry deck is thriving, and tonight I will be using fistfuls of fresh basil for our dinner.

We already have tiny tomatoes forming, our first strawberry flower opened yesterday, and my garden is only a month old.

I’m declaring it a success!

It’s such a joy to be able to check in each morning and see what progress has been made, or to wander up while dinner is cooking to pluck a few fresh herbs. I’ve already harvested quite a lot of coriander and parsley, and I can see I will need to plant more because we use so much of it in our daily meals.

I’ll add a few photos below.

Love, hugs and that sharp sweet smell of crushed basil leaves, Nicole xx

  1. Dear Nicole
    Aren’t fresh herbs the simplest ingredients to transform a dish from mundane to sublime? 🤩
    I wouldn’t be without my home grown herbs.

  2. They all look strong and vibrant!! Basil is incredible….I am going to plant some more today after having been inspired by your success!! 💚💚💚
