Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Gardening started as a hobby for me in the same way that sensible shoes hit me as a good idea – completely out of the blue, entirely unexpected and with the unwelcome realisation that I was not young anymore.

Before I had children I believed the hype; mothers had loads of time on their hands to be doing their hair and make-up, baking for the school fete, and getting up in the night, not to their children, but for a midnight snack. I foolishly thought that if I was blessed with children, it would mean that I would have more time to be a yummy mummy, which would include, more time for gardening and growing my own. When I became a mother just over four years ago, the reality hit: I might be brushing my hair, but make-up was out of the window; if I got the chance to bake anything, I would be consuming the goods myself as my food for the day, and if I was in bed at midnight, I would leave the warmth and comfort of my duvet for two reasons and two reasons only – one: the baby was crying or two: the bed was on fire. Immediately that my son arrived gardening became quite a long way down the list, a very long list, with sub-lists, and appendices. This being the list that mothers never get to the bottom of, that no one tells you about, but we all have.

When we moved into our house, complete with the dullest of dull gardens, I decided that I was not going to add landscaping the garden to the list of things to feel guilty about - it only ever got longer and I always felt bad about it. As a gardening novice, I decided that if I could do one gardening –related task a month for twelve months, then that was going to be good enough. Hopefully at the end of those twelve months there would be an improvement, maybe a few veggies and I would have one less thing to feel guilty about; I might even feel a small sense of achievement. So in the middle of being a mother to two small children, working, and discovering that I was pregnant with my third child, that is what I did. Month by month I wrote about what I was up to in my garden and in my life. I decided that January was to be Planning Month so that when May came round, I knew that was Hanging Baskets and Pots Month. I wrote about my gardening efforts to try to encourage mothers who are tempted to make their first foray into gardening but are not sure how or where to begin. I wrote about my life because there are millions of us silently, endlessly struggling through the washing pile and sometimes it is good to stop, have a cup of tea, and smile

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Bridget Jones Gets Married, Has Kids, Starts a Garden 2 juin 2013
Par Tolly - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I loved this book! The author is engaging and charming and a bit irreverent--all the things my favorite people are, so I was very entertained throughout and learned a few tips that I hadn't considered before (like using "loo" rolls around the base of plants--what a great idea, I did this around my cukes and haven't yet had any problems with cutworm or like using egg cartons as seed starter trays--the cardboard ones, of course).

The book has a lot of ideas for getting children involved in projects such as making seed boxes to save seed in and in various garden tasks, so it's definitely a good read for moms.

Over all, it was a delightful romp through the author's garden with some engaging stories tossed in that made me laugh out loud. It was almost like reading Bridget Jones all grown up with a husband, children, and a brand new diary in which she records her forays into gardening.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is the BEST read!!! 4 avril 2013

First off, I am waaaay past the "mummy" stage, and a fairly expert gardener to boot, however, I found this little book to be full of seriously useful tips and tricks that everyone who gardens at all can put to good use. Organized by the months, she gives you one or two tasks that will get your garden in pretty fair shape in very little time and effort. And, did I say that this gal is hysterically funny? Well, she really, really is. So give this little book a try, you'll be glad you did.(And, no, I am not her mother, this really is a good gardening book.)

This was a great, easy read. If you have kids, you'll totally be able to relate, especially if you're still trying to find the time and energy to get out into your own garden. It's got some good general tips, but it's more than that. Give it a shot!

(I had to look up aubergines and courgettes, because I had no idea they were eggplants and zucchinis!)
