A well organized seed bin

Five Things Friday

The five little things that made my week…

1. I love a well-organized seed bin! Currently down to 190 seed varieties after sorting and tossing the older packets. (Click here for my guide on figuring out the shelf life of your seeds.)

Fall feijoa harvest

2. Fall harvest of feijoas (from this week, anyway!) that’s making the house smell deliciously good. It’s a soft, sweet floral scent that just stops you in your tracks. I’ve managed to can or give away three-quarters of that fruit so far, and the rest will be frozen for next summer’s smoothies.

Banana harvest

3. We’ve been making a weekly feijoa-banana bread but can barely keep up with the fruit harvest. Between those feijoas and these bananas, our freezer is bursting at the seams.

A plethora of canning jars

4. By the time this month is over, I’m going to be swimming in jam, jelly, chutney, and pickles.

Baby's first Christmas hat

5. The weather’s still lingering in the 70s, but we’re shooting our family Christmas card this weekend and somebody is going to look super cute in this! (Hint: It won’t be the hubby or me.)

  • I envy you being able to grow all these fruits! I’m thinking about trying feijoas but it is a pretty big gamble here in the Netherlands…

    • Feijoas are excellent container plants and they’re self-pollinating as well. All the flowers in spring are delightful!

  • Such a neat seed tin, I really should sort mine out! Love that little hat šŸ™‚

  • Silly Little Sheep

    Your harvest looks fantastic!! And I bet the Christmas picture will look great, too! šŸ™‚
