Did you plant for St Pats?

My Mum got some Sweet Peas for our garden, especially to plant on St Patrick's Day. This, I didn't know, is a gardening tradition for these plants... and she texted me even to remind me!

Of course I planted them yesterday, but look what ELSE has been growing!!!

I've never grown mushrooms before, so just followed the box (from the hardware store) and its instructions! AMAZING!

Doris Day is a little stunned they can grow in her yard, and hasn't yet got used to us taking a zillion photos of her. She'll learn to smile soon enough!


  1. YES! I planted for St Pat's too!!
    I've never attempted mushrooms though, wow. You have a green thumb!

  2. We used to have mushrooms under the sink in Erskineville! Yes, the ones like yours, it was the mushrooms in the Shower in Surry Hills that were the real worry. ;)

  3. I had no idea that was a St Pats day tradition. Nice - I'll have to remember that for next year. :-)

    Yay for mushrooms! I've been eyeing up those kits and wondering how well they work - thanks for posting photos, they look awesome!

    1. They were different from the supermarket/market ones, kinda denser and flatter than 'button'... and cooked really quickly (we had creamy mushroom pasta) so yeh TOTALLY tasty!

  5. Ooo I may have to try to grow some of my own!

    p.s. your pup is adorable :)

  6. I love Doris Day!!! You are right, her and Frankie are twins, twins from across the world! Post more photos of her, please!


Thanks for being awesome and a total darling, leave a message!
