A new life!

This week we welcomed the newest member of our family into the world; granddaughter Violet.


Ruby is thrilled to be a big sister!

Ruby and Violet

Not surprisingly, not much has happened in the garden this past week!

However, we have planted a few punnets of seedlings and are planning what to plant for winter. I shall blog about all of this in a couple of days.


The A Kailyard in Adelaide team are going Meat Free for a week from the 23rd March. We are doing this to raise awareness about excessive meat consumption and the impact it is having on our health, animals and the environment. And in the process, we are raising money for Voiceless https://www.voiceless.org.au/ .

So please support us, donate and help us to reach our goal – and hopefully exceed it!

Or alternatively, join Meat Free week yourself!

Every little bit counts. No matter how small. Wish us luck!



About A Kailyard in Adelaide

A Kailyard in Adelaide! We are working hard to be domestically sustainable in the foothills of Adelaide. As we both work fulltime this is not an easy task, but we do our best growing much of our own produce in our yard and in our community garden plots. We reduce, recycle and reuse as much as possible and try hard to not consume mindlessly. We have 5000 l of rainwater, a 5 kw solar system, and use a green energy provider for all our excess needs.
