And since you make a bunch in advance you have ready to go breakfast options all week.

I love these. They are filling and so much healthier than your muffins, bagels, donuts, and whatever else you grab with your morning coffee.

Show Your Vege Garden.


The face of home grown Vege Gardens is changing. The population is flocking to the suburbs and that means land sizes are smaller and buildings take up more area on the land. Something has to go. It seems that the piece in the design that is being left out is the yard and gardens. Now for a lot of suburban dwellings the garden consists of a hedge to divide the yards and provide privacy from the neighbours. Very little room left for a humble vege patch. I can remember when I was little going into the back garden and harvesting the corn with my dad, or picking the strawberries with my mum. We had enough area in the garden to us a petrol cultivator, I would spend the afternoon churning up the soil ready for my dad to plant the corn, after he reworked everything I had already dug so that it was straight. It is something that children in the suburbs today may never see.

So I think it is time, we need some inspiration, tips and trick on home grown vege gardens. If you have the green thumb in your family, please share your knowledge with us, so that we can all benefit from your green wisdom. I will try to collect as much information from the web, but the sweet spot will come from our home grown audience.
