A Pyjama Gardener is anyone who is too impatient to get dressed before venturing outside to check the plants… it was only meant to be a quick look (honestly)… but before you know it an hour or more has passed and you’re still wearing your pyjamas!
I am so excited to have a new Kitchen Garden and I want to fill this space with great vegetables, lovely herbs and a fabulous fruit. I’ve never been lucky enough to have this space before but the gardening I do in my imagination is amazing!! I’m sure to make mistakes but will hopefully have fun and learn from these as I go along!
As a fellow pyjama wearing gardener (only in the back garden though) and mess maker, hope you have a wonderful first growing year in your gorgeous garden.V.best Naomi
Thanks for your kind wishes. Your blog is amazing and I look forward to following your hard work in 2012.
Oh, I do identify with this. Not only pyjamas, but dressing gown and (only once, honestly) slippers. I always think I’ll only do a quick little “clean” job, and end up getting wet and filthy. The slippers were never the same again. Welcome to the world of garden blogging. I will follow your future progress with interest, as they say.
Welcome to the blogosphere; you’re off to a great start! Your blog has a lovely fresh look and I’ve enjoyed reading through your posts.
It was nice to learn more about you and about the blog.
Welcome to Blotanical!
Visit my blog in return: http://northern-garden.blogspot.com/
Are those your chickens? If so, we are kindred spirits since we would both have chickens and a garden.
Nice blog. I like your style and your sense of humor.
David/ Tropical Texana/ Houston, Texas :0)
Hi David – yes the chickens are mine and they are gorgeous ladies! We’ve had a fox sniffing around again so they’re safely locked up (much to their disgust!). They have a lovely big run though so it’s not too bad. Your blog is great – we need to stop grumbling about the rain in England as I’m sure you’d love some of it!
Oh what I could do with the rain in England… I miss the rain in England.
Loved finding your blog through Blotanical. We sadly can’t wander the garden in our pyjamas, as we might scare the customers, although i was outside weeding with a hairdye cap on, when i was stopped and asked some questions by some visitors, we all just pretended everything was completely normal 🙂
Looking forward to following your blog, Cat
I love it! I can’t count the times I’ve walked out in my PJs to “do something just quick” and still been out in the garden in my PJs two hours later. 🙂
Hi there’ I’ve just popped over from Brdiget’s blog, and it’s great to “meet” another pyjama gardener. I know that feeling all too well “the I’ll just go and take a quick look at the garden and before you know it an hour has passed”. Happy gardening!
Thanks for dropping by – the good news is that I’ve now found your blog too! It will take me a long time to read through your posts so I’ll make time at the weekend so I can enjoy properly x
I am not a gardener (yet) but I love the name…and completely understand because of my mom 🙂
i I was happy to find your blog this morning and discover I am not the only person out in the garden in nightwear. I greet my chickens each morning in dressing gown and wellies and always manage to spend a good time pottering before realising I should put something on! My neighbours (who I am sure have seen me) must think I am mad. Great blog which is now on my regular reading list.
Thank you so much for dropping by and taking the time to comment. Dressing gown and wellies is such a good look… add a waterproof jacket and bobble hat and you’ve got one really sassy outfit!
Thanks for calling by and taking the time to like one of my posts. Brambly Hedge seems like a great book to read on earth day.
What a lovely blog! Your Kitchen Garden is fantastic! Can’t wait to see more!
I cannot count how many times I’ve jumped out of the shower, dried off, spotted something out the window that needed quick attention, zipped out the back door without a stitch, accidentally scared the sheep and then turned around to find the UPS guy filling out paperwork and waiting for my signiture. sigh.
I’ve only got a small container garden in my yard, and I’ve done this countless times barefoot and all without noticing, it’s like you’re still in the house really… 🙂
Great blog, and keep up the good work.
Thanks Graziella – it’s really lovely of you to come over and see me! I sympathise with the problem you have with hail as it has virtually destroyed my rocket and baby lettuce. Thanks for your kind comments.
Hello! I have really enjoyed reading your blog and I just nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! You can read more here: http://willowcottagegarden.wordpress.com/2012/04/24/versatile-blogger-nomination/. Cheers Her x : o )
Thank you SO much – I enjoy reading your blog too so I’m touched that you’ve considered me. Thanks Her!!
I just found your blog and had myself a good chuckle. A fellow gardener who sneaks out for just a minute in pajama bottoms and a jacket. If I want to dress it up a bit, I pull some sweats over the pj’s so the neighbor on one side doesn’t notice. Thank you for the connection – I thought I might be the only one out there before I’m really ready for the day.
I’m lucky as our neighbours can’t see me… it’s just the Postman that sometimes gets a surprise! Thanks for dropping by… there’s more pyjama gardeners than we think 😉
I too venture out into the garden without fully getting dressed so I’m growing morning glories against the wooden fence for a fast fix. I suppose I could make sure I’m decent before heading out but who am I kidding.
Ha ha… this really is a growing sport! Thanks for taking time to comment and visit my blog.
I have nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award. Check it out at http://ahealthylifeforme.com/2012/05/06/my-100th-post-the-liebster-blog-award/
You are very kind… thank you so much!
love your blog. I wish I could be a pyjama gardener too. my garden is a 20min bike ride across town. athough this beeing berlin people might not even notice if I cycle in my pyjamas.
I do get my “street clothes” dirty frequently. I quickly pull out a couple of weeds here before I change… or even worse when I am about to leave.
You do well to cycle before starting the gardening… it must be very rewarding to be growing things and looking after the wildlife in the city. Your broad beans are looking good… thanks for taking the time to comment!
What a lovely time I’ve had visiting your blog. Perhaps our neighbors understand that the gift our gardens bring come with the daft dressing habits of the gardeners. I, too, stride into view in PJ’s.
Thanks for stopping by Sustainable Beauty and giving me the opportunity to find you.
PJ Gardener — Love your site! Thank you for the like on my blog! Come back and visit again~Barb
Thank you for dropping by and liking my post!
I love your name! I garden in my pjs all the time! I wander out to let out the chickens, start pulling weeds and before I know it, it’s 10:00! Looking forward to following you!
and thanks for liking my post too!
Another PJ gardener chuckling right now… And good to know there are so many others out there hiding behind a shrub from UPS and other delivery guys.
We’re coming out in droves! Thanks for dropping by 🙂
you’re a very inspiring lady… i’ll be checking in here often!!
Love your blog. I garden in my PJs and houseshoes, even my robe sometimes. Lol. Usually with a cup of hot coffee in my hands. :0) Well, I feel inspired to go back out into the garden now! Cheers!
You’re so kind, thank you for visiting! I love to meet fellow PJ gardeners x
so many things are better in pyjamas 🙂
OMG I’m so not worthy (I’ve just seen your cupcakes as well!) – I do potter around in my jamas in the garden…..it doesn’t improve my produce but at least they know I really care about them 🙂
I’m a barefoot gardener, I love walking in the dirt! Thanks for liking my post!
PJ – I nominated you for the Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandments Award! Hugs girl! Here is the link:
I’ve just noticed that you’ve already been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award (I thought you had but missed the above comment yesterday when I was doing the prep). Anyway, I do like your blog and so wanted to give it to you as recognition of that and the fact that we are facing the same climatic challenges at present:
I nominated you for the “One Lovely Blog” award! You can see it here @ http://urbancurator.wordpress.com/2012/07/24/ive-been-nominated/
wow – I see you have a few nominations here!
Mona – thank you SO much. I really love your blog… it’s so stylish and fresh (all the things I can only dream about!). Thanks again x
Thank you so much! You deserve to be nominated – great blog!!
I enjoy reading your blog so much that I have nominated you for an award! Take a look here: http://wordsandherbs.wordpress.com/2012/08/02/inspiration-awards-and-stuff/
Many thanks Cathy x I love your idea of grouping awards together and doing one post to thank people and highlight other blogs, so I may do the same!
Great! It’s meant to be fun, so do as you please and enjoy! 😀
PJ Gardener eh? I like that. I look forward to being that. When we first bought our house, the back yard was completely surrounded by huge weedy shrubs and poorly maintained trees – apparently the previous owner planned the yard this way so she could sit in her back yard in her PJ’s in complete privacy. Needless to say we removed all that scraggly plant material………then discovered we were quite exposed – no PJ gardening for me. Over the years we’ve planted more appropriate trees and shrubs, added some privacy screening, and are slowly regaining our privacy………it won’t be long til I join your ranks and become a ‘PJ gardener’ too.
I’m lucky not to be overlooked by anyone so the PJs are quite acceptable around here. Your trees will soon grow and you’ll be able to wander around in the morning with a cup of tea and not worry about people thinking you’ve escaped from somewhere!
I just got told I couldn’t play badminton in my dressing gown. How cruel is that??? x
That’s too cruel for words 😦
What a unique blog! I would just die if anyone saw me in my PJ’s in my garden! Nope, I get dressed to go outside to tend to my garden and then get undressed when I come back inside. I don’t care how crazy that sounds!
I am nominating you for TWO awards: The Beautiful Blogger Award and the Super Sweet Blogging Award. I have not posted my posts as yet but I am notifying you so you can get a head start. It looks like you know the drill! Congratulations! (If you do not accept awards, please let me know, thank you!)
Hello, yeah..I wonder out into the garden in the morning in my PJ’s to. Yesterday I had my nightshirt on and just slipped on a pair of joggy bottoms and cut the grass. Look forward to following you.
Hi Tina – you have a lovely secret allotment!
I have nominated you for the Inspiring Blog and One Lovely Blog awards. Here: http://wp.me/p1jL9y-i9. You can pass the torch by giving me a shout-out, then stating 7 facts about yourself and nominating 15 bloggers whom you find inspiring or lovely. Or just skip it and post whatever you’d like. 🙂
I’ve accepted the ‘One Lovely Blogger Award’ and included you in my list of Bloggers to check out. You can read it here:
(no pressure, just wanted to acknowledge how much I enjoy your posts-Boomdee)
That’s a lovely new banner, PJ.
You’re the first to notice Alys – thank you! I’m just playing as it’s raining outside and I’ve been wanting to change it for a long time. The previous photo was my tiny veg plot that I used to use before the Kitchen Garden was built this year x
I love it. It gives a nice flavor of what you write about. Beautiful photos, too.
Enjoy that rain if you can. It’s breezy and warm here, with slightly overcast skies. I’m away for the weekend with my sister, but need to get busy planting winter seeds when we get home.
Well, here I am, right behind Boomdee. You must be feeling the love this weekend.
I’ve been enjoying your blog for several months, so it seemed right to include you on my list of Seven Super Bloggers.
Please don’t feel obligated to pass it on.
Keep up the great blogs, PJ
I hope a few of my readers link over.
Where are you located? What country? The hills/mountains behind your gardens look like Vermont, but your use of language seems a bit…somewhere else.
Vermont is very beautiful so thank you for the comparison! I live in England so my British accent might sound a bit strange on the blog! LOL!!! A bit like my sense of humour so please forgive me 🙂
Thanks for stopping by.
It doesn’t sound strange, it sounded British, but i didn’t want to be wrong & you be offended (for some reason)
What a great idea! I would love to wear my PJ’s when gardening!!
Thank you for sharing the beauty of your garden, I’ve nominated your blog for the Sunshine Award: http://threepeapermaculture.wordpress.com/2012/11/24/and-the-award-goes-to/
Hi pj girl. Thanks for stopping by on the shabby chic kitchen post I’m glad you liked it. My wife and I recently became allotment renters so I shall be following for tips I think!
Hello and what a beautiful blog! A good friend who is also a landscaper and blogger (and fabulous writer) just told me about your site (actually she just mentioned it on her blog, http://www.gardenhood.wordpress.com). I’m a writer too, and a publisher, and I’m trying to connect with garden writers as I have a new garden writing magazine. I would like to offer all your readers a free sample issue (pdf). The link is http://www.greenwomanmagazine.com Thank you–I appreciate your time in reading this–Sandra
Hello, Just wanted to let you know I nominated your blog for a Beautiful blogger award 🙂 http://unistudentsoutlook.wordpress.com/2013/02/28/the-beautiful-blogger-award/
Hello and thank you so much x it’s very kind of you!
I love your passion for gardening- that’s fantastic.
Cute blog! Have you found that your pile of gardening clothes outnumbers your non-gardening clothes thanks to all the wandering outside? L)

Just stopping by to say Hello! I imagine you’re busy busy working in your lovely garden. Hope it’s all simply wonderful!
Miss you dearly. Gentle hugs. xK
La la la, lewdy-do….oh hello! I was just skipping by. Well not really. I was entertaining myself with some of my very own, be it old, blog posts. Actually, they’re sometimes quite delightful, ha! As it happens, you had left a message on that one and so I linked to your long lost blog….again 😀 Kind of happenstance though. I’m having to chop down the rhubbarb plant soon and saw your Granny’s recipe out front. So that’s a bit of a coincedence. As I realize, you may never read these messages, I’ll just say now how delicious it was and thank your granny properly. See you in a couple of years then shall I? Love and Hugs Boomdee.
