Hi there! We are Kate and Jenny Coulson, two sisters with a crazy love for old things, green things, and delicious things. Welcome to our happy little space on the internet.
Growing up, we lived in a crumbly farmhouse with a big garden in the middle of Johannesburg. We had lemon trees, avo trees, mulberry trees and – our favourite – two ancient, gnarled plum trees to play in. Those trees were so good we named our blog after them. (Also, this poem).
Our goddess of a mother taught us to cook healthy food and DIY a beautiful home, two habits which have never quite left us, no matter where we’ve lived. We hope you enjoy reading about our adventures!
