Anyone else excited for spring? We sure are!

This week we have been tending to our tiny garden, making it ready for planting. Although it’s only about 15 m2 in size, it is a couple of days in and still not ready.

I wanted to enlarge the garden a bit, but throwing out grass to make room for soil is not as easy as it sounds. It actually takes quite a lot of effort, because I want to save as much soil as I can.

Next, while digging the garden, the old-ish wood planks that we have been using as a garden border, fell away, rotten. We have only been using them for about 4 years maybe. But when we moved to the house and started the garden, we used what we had on hands to minimize costs. It was never to be a permanent solution anyway, as we still need to fix the whole yard. It’s a slow process.

Alas, as the rotten planks disintegrated, Mitja went on to purchase some metal lawn edges that we plan to install, as soon the weather permits it. And mow the overgrown lawn.

Next on the agenda will be planting some seedlings and tending to our fast growing strawberries.

Even though the garden is small, there’s an awful lot to do! But, I still love having it, as it provides us with fresh home-grown produce most of the year. Even in dead-winter, I could still pick fresh herbs!

Do you keep a garden or even a balcony garden?

So while I wait for our own strawberries and raspberries to grow, here is a vibrant Banana Raspberry Smoothie Bowl, made in just 2 minutes with 4 ingredients! So simple, yet visually stunning and with powerful flavors!

Just place bananas, raspberries, strawberries and some plant-based milk in the blender, blend until thick and smooth and serve!

  1. So this looks amazing! It’s making me crave a fresh smoothie. As for your digging issue, I’ve had a lot of success by plotting out my garden, covering it in black plastic bags, then covering that with mulch. After a month or so, I begin checking to see if the grass has died and broken down. This way I save the valuable dirt and kill the grass. If you can stand the ugliness of the black plastic, it’s even better to leave it uncovered with mulch because it “cooks” the grass. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    1. Thanks, Rebekah!

      Yeah, we saw some guides with a similar technique, only using cardboard and mulch to cover up the grass and kill it that way. We actually did put some cardboard on top of it, but we didn’t leave it there nearly long enough so it didn’t have any effect. Luckily it wasn’t that big of a patch so manually removing it was manageable. For a bigger patch, we would definitely have to resort to something else 🙂
