Spuds and Stuff!

I do try to encourage my children to enjoy gardening. At our last home we had a little patch of garden where we used to grow things, mostly flowers. They had much fun, digging and planting and especially watering.

This year we managed to get some sunflowers planted, unfortunately they haven't flowered yet. I'm not sure if our garden soil is good enough, the land was been through a lot considering it was a building site just a year ago, maybe we need to give it a little time. I do hope we can grow things though, I'd really like a herb garden.

We don't really have the space to grow our own fruit and veg so I am planning to take the children to the National Forest Adventure Farm to explore their new Kitchen Garden and to dig up some potatoes. Every weekend throughout Septemeber, the Farm is letting children dig their own potatoes for free at their Spudfest event. I'm sure my children are going to have lots of fun. We will have to think up a fun potato recipe for Kids in the Kitchen!

In October the farm will be opening their pumpkin fields up to children. How exciting being able to pick your own Pumpkin from a field.

We are really looking forward to going back to the farm, we had such fun when we visited to take part in the Scarecrow Record Breaker event. There was so much we didn't have time to do though so we will have plenty of new things to show you after our visit. In particular the children are looking forward to the inside play area which we didn't spend too much time at last time, mainly because Star was still in her halo and couldn't join in the fun.

Here are scarecrows from our last visit.

  1. This is such a fun time of year harvesting fruits and vegetables. We picked pumpkins last year and had a blast.


Thank you for stopping by, I truly appreciate all comments x

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I've also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I've loved. If I don't love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It's always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I'll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
