Bloobs… wanna take a wild guess? Blueberries, that’s right. Abel loves berries!

Besides eating ‘bloobs’ we’ve been playing outside more lately. It is spring now and some days are really warm. I’m planting a veggie garden this year so we’ve been outside preparing that. We have lettuce planted, and I’ve started some cucumber, courgette/zucchini, tomato, capsicum/pepper, chives, spring onion, and strawberries. They’re inside and I’ll put them in the ground when they’ve grown a bit bigger. The capsicum isn’t really growing but I’ve heard they are hard to grow so I’m not too surprised. We’ll see if any of the seeds germinate. I also have some squash seeds I saved but I think I will plant those later in the season, and focus on the cucumbers and courgettes for now.

Abel loves helping dig in the dirt and he loves having a bath afterwards to get all clean.

Yesterday we spent the afternoon at the beach, and it was so nice. The wind was a bit chilly and it was overcast but it was so nice to get out and enjoy it. I took some fun photos as well which I’ll share later! We visited the same beach last September so I have some cute comparison photos to share. Ok I’ll just do a sneak peak now. So cute…

It’s hard to believe there’s only a year between these photos!

  1. How wonderful that you were able to spend the day at the beach. I hope your vegetables take off soon and that the wether stays pleasantly warm.

  2. Best wishes for the garden!

    Our daughter is 18 months and OBSESSED with blue blues as she calls blueberries. They really are a great toddler food. Thankfully we live in New Brunswick where wild blueberries are cheap!

    1. That’s awesome! We buy frozen usually since those are available all year round but fresh berries are the best! We’re going into summer so I’m excited for affordable fresh berries!

  3. I miss you and your family on social media and finally found a moment to come by and visit.

    Do you know about hardening plants off, if they have been inside (controlled access to wind/their new home a bit at a time before putting them outside permanently)? I grew capsicum in Palmy so they will grow well in NZ but I started from seedling. Cherry tomatoes are a great starter plant, they ripen fast enough that bugs don’t get them too much.

    1. Hi Heather, sorry for taking so long to respond! Yes I have heard about hardening plants, I haven’t really tried it though. After the seedlings I started indoors died I just planted seeds direct since it was warm enough. I’ll have to try the capsicum seeds again. The tomatoes and courgette and pumpkin I started seem to be growing well!
