Last month of winter approaches...
As we approach the last month of winter we're assessing, obsessing and planning. It seems like time is getting away from us as we lead into the busy Spring and Summer seasons. We know, however, that time hasn't gotten any quicker it's just that we're assessing time prospectively - what did we achieve/do today, and retrospectively - what did we achieve/do last week/month. Time hasn't changed at all! It's us, we've changed, we've learnt something new, we've adapted, or we've followed our daily routines. Research says that filling your time with new experiences will help us perceive time differently. If you're looking for your own personal measurement of time we encourage you to look at Claudia Hammond's booking. Time Warped. Claudia has also put together a short clip providing you with 30 seconds of amazing facts about time (eating fast food makes you feel impatient), check it out.
GARDENING TIP OF THE WEEK...
Use your cooking water wisely. Instead of pouring your cooking water down the sink, let it cool down and use it to water your plants. The nutrients and vitamins in the water you use to cook vegetables or pasta will give you greener plants.
Recipe of the week....
We love following Love & Lemons. Their blog is full of delicious, fresh seasonal recipes, and their pictures are drool worthy. We're constantly thinning out the carrots, which means we have a delicious supply of very small carrots. The recipe is gluten free and dairy free. The carrot top pesto is the perfect accompaniment. Head to tail carrot love! We hope you enjoy, if you have a chance to the try the recipe we'd love to see and share your pictures.
