The Summer Reading List

The Summer Reading List

Lately, I’ve really enjoyed switching up my iPad and winding down with an actual, page turning book instead of a glowing screen. I just miss the days when books were held in your hands, and when you were reading, you wouldn’t get distracted by a pop up notifications that instantly take your attention away from the story. So I’ve made it a priority to start reading actual books again and leaving the iPad for daily “work stuff”. In that, I’ve become quite the little book worm and have gone through a couple of new releases, so I wanted to share a few picks that I loved and a few that look perfect for summer, so that you can add some new summer reads to your list.

Celebrating Cucumbers Today

Celebrating Cucumbers Today

Today is a rather unusual day to celebrate, but it’s a good one! It’s Hendrick’s World Cucumber Day. And in honour of this day, I’m sharing a few unusual cucumber growing tips from Hendrick’s Gin, who conducted a very different kind of experiment, which revealed cucumbers to be highly sensitive to sound, scent and touch! So, if you want to grow the most glorious cucumbers for your G&T’s, then you may want to crank up your playlist, make better choices on what other plants you plant them with and start swaddling those glorious greens. Sound kinda crazy – you ain’t seen nothing yet…
