Fruit and Vegetables in Season in March

Hello March! You’re looking mighty fine! I don’t know if it’s all the snowdrops and crocuses in bloom right now, or the fact that every florist and corner shop around here is dripping in daffodils but I’m beginning to feel a little spring in my step, even if the weather isn’t quite matching my mood yet!

I’ve put together my monthly guide to what fruit and vegetables are in season in March, and again put together a free printable (image free) that you can print out and pin to your fridge door or take with you on shopping trips.  I don’t know about you but I’ve been finding this printable insanely useful!  You can download this guide to what’s in season in March here .

    Ethical Gift Ideas for Mums

    Mother’s Day is fast approaching (Sunday 15th March) and I’ve been on the hunt for some ethical gift ideas for mums.  I’ve covered all aspects – from booze (Edinburgh Gin is my favourite!) to fashion; from homewares and to pretty accessories.  Now the hard part is deciding which one to get for my mum!

    All the ethical gift ideas suggested in this post are under £30, and start at just £10 as I like to keep things budget friendly around these parts!

    ethical mothers day gift ideas

    From Clockwise:

    Ophelia Beaded Necklace (£19.95) from Mimosa Street – sparkly and beautiful and fairtrade.

    Picture Frame (from £12.95) from Decorator’s Notebook – I love these copper frames, they’d look lovely in any interior.  Fill with old photos or old memories for a really thoughtful gift.

    Breton Top* (£24.90) from Braintree Clothing – Every lady needs a good breton top in their life.  This one is no exception.

    Elderflower Liquer (£17.99) from Edinburgh Gin – perfect for making Mother’s Day cocktails. Is that a thing?  I say it should be!

    Floral Scarf (£29.95) from Seasalt – I love the William Morris feel to this pretty scarf.

    To Kill A Mockingbird Brooch* (£10) from Etsy – if your mum is excited about the new Harper Lee book!

    Linen Pouch* (£10) from Etsy  – I love this so much and might have to sneakily buy this as a gift from me to me.  It’s listed as a sewing and crafting pouch, but I’d probably use it to store my makeup or other bits and bobs.

     

    If all else fails then why not head to your local florist and pick up a pretty bunch of spring flowers?  UK grown bluebells, hyacinths, iris and tulips are all in season in March and make a lovely choice for a spring bouquet!

    ps: ethical gift ideas for mum from previous years here and here if you’re looking for more inspiration!

      Pinning This Month

      I’ve been busy pinning on Pinterest this month and I wanted to share my favourites that I’ve shared on there in case you’re not a Pinterest convert (yet!).  I say yet because my partner has just become a Pinterest convert!  After years of saying he just doesn’t get it he’s only just gone and set up his own Pinterest board and is now happily pinning pictures of his dream fish tanks (he loves his fish!), saying that he finally gets it!

      Mini Avocado and Hummus Quesadilla

      I pinned this avocado and hummus quesadilla recipe on to my vegetarian cooking board, only to find the link doesn’t work – but fear not, I tracked down the original recipe here. I don’t know about you, but I feel hungry just looking at this!

      Bottle Candlesticks

      So, these bottle candlesticks are probably a) a Christmas thing and b) a bridal thing, but I love the look of these.  I’m going to have to find a way to incorporate these into my life!

      Potting Shed and Greenhouse

      This potting shed/greenhouse is just stunning.  Our allotment doesn’t allow you to erect a shed, let alone a potting shed come greenhouse, but a girl can dream!

      A beautiful dining room

      I pinned this beautiful dining room belong to Lou Archell of the blog Little Green Shed.  As well as having serious William Morris wallpaper envy I love her mix of secondhand furniture and accessories.

      Growing lemon plants from seeds
      lemon plant from seed
      We grew a lemon plant from seed several years ago but sadly the plant died before getting very big (to be fair, we were living in a big draughty Edinburgh tenement in a really cold winter).  But this pin reminded that it’s so easy so we fished out the seeds from the lemon we used on Pancake Day, and have planted them up and are on the go right now!  Because we live in Scotland and don’t enjoy a Mediterranean climate (far from it – there was snow this week!) we don’t plant them outside – just keep them as houseplants.  This bad boy has been repinned 49 times (?!).
