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!
Ready to dig in?
- 3 bananas
- 1 cup raspberries
- 1 cup strawberries
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- Coconut flakes
- Mint leaves
- Quinoa puffs
- Peel bananas, wash and dry berries.
- Place bananas, raspberries, strawberries and almond milk in a blender, and blend on high until smooth and thick. Depending on your liking, you can add water to thin the smoothie out, but you want it rather thick for a smoothie bowl.
- Pour smoothie in bowls and top with ingredients to your liking. We added a couple raspberries and strawberries, some coconut flakes and quinoa puffs and garnished with a couple of mint leaves. Serve.
