Woohoo it’s boysenberry season! Just picked my first mouthful and wow what a flavour profile! Sweet and slightly sour mmm! Did you know that like most berries the boysenberry is also medicinal? They are high in anthocyanins which can improve eyesight, are anti-aging, protective for cardiovascular disease and they reduce inflammation which is high in most chronic diseases. They also are rich in ellagic acid which is a powerful anti carcinogenic for cancer! The other thing I love about boysenberries is that they are a low GI fruit which means less of an impact on blood glucose levels which is important in diabetes or insulin resistance! From a TCM perspective berries nourish kidney qi which is where our vital force is held and is often depleted on exhausted people. I have several boysenberry plants that have popped up this year and need a home so if your based on Taranaki and would like to pick one up just message me!

FIVE EPIC HOLIDAY BOARDS⁠.... Which would you pick 1,2,3,4 or 5? ⁠ It’s that time of the year! The holiday parties are here.⁠ So I put together 5 loaded boards to help you celebrate in style.⁠ ⁠ I have an epic cheese board, a halva lovers idea of heaven, Israeli style falafels and dips, an Italian antipasto platter and a dried fruit and nut board to bring it all home.⁠ ⁠ They are so easy to throw together but they look super impressive. Your guests will think you have been slaving away in the kitchen for days.⁠ ⁠ The trick is to source quality ingredients and find a nice big board to lay it all on. You are going for color and variety. So feel free to improvise and mix it up.⁠ ⁠ Use bowls and gorgeous serveware to make it a little fancy. And pair it with a fabulous holiday cocktail or some nice vino and bubbly to make it festive.⁠ ⁠ You can find the full recipes for these awesome party platters on the home page of my website (link in bio). And don't forget to tag me #melissamayo and send me pics of your epic boards. Chin chin xxx MM

Strawberries, blueberries, and tea, oh my! Two of our tea blends feature real freeze-dried fruit: Happy-Go-Lightly with its sweet strawberries and Life Support with its antioxidant-rich blueberries. You will notice small desiccant packets in both when you open a pouch, which help keep the berries fresh, tasty, and dry. Cheers! 💕☕️🌞

Tag someone who loves berries! 😃⁠ ⁠ We use berries daily in our smoothies, acai bowls, yogurt (vegan 🌱 of course) protein shakes & anything else we can think of, so we stay stocked up in this household. 🍓⁠ ⁠ They’re high in antioxidants, fiber and can help regulate blood sugar and cholesterol levels. ⁠ ⁠ Just recently we’ve made more of an effort to buy or berries from the farmers market rather than the supermarket so we can: ⁠ ⁠ 1. Support local farmers ⁠ 2. Get fresher produce (last longer)⁠ 3. Avoid single-use plastics⁠ ⁠ Are you big on berries and if so what do you use them for?⁠

After 3 years of patiently nurturing this Blueberry shrub to produce enough so that the Assistant Gardener can stop buying plastic punnets of Bbs, (at least for a season), we are finally there! A small bowl's worth and more to come. . I treat my Bb shrub just as would any other acid loving plant. Occasional fertilising with Azalea/Camelia food, a thick mulch of pine needles (acidic), worm tea and a little liquid Potash. That is key to my success up here, understand what your plants require and give the love. They reward you if you are diligent, conscientious and generous with it. . Patience surely does bear fruit! . . . . . . . . . #blueberry #berriesfordays #igrewthis #acidlover #soilpH #vegetablegarden #instagardeners #permaculture #gardenlove #citygarden #veggiegarden #kitchengarden #gardentotable #balconygarden #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #urbangarden #greenthumb #organicfood #growsomethinggreen #urbangardening #organicgardenermag #gardeningaustralia #urbanfarmer  #organicgarden #citylife #gardeningaustraliamag #thehappygardeninglife
