A tease

17 Apr


Joe is enjoying his packed lunch. Home made sourdough bread with homemade hommos and home grown tomatoes. The lettuce, cucumber and eggs are all locally grown produce. Dessert was a sourdough cinnamon scroll that I lovingly prepared last night. I promise a blog next week about these sourdough success stories.

    Everything is home grown and organic. It must be have high nutritional value.

      Well the eggs are free range from a local farm. The lettuce is hydroponics based which may or may not be ethical (I haven’t looked into it actually) and the cucumber was obtained from the farmers markets. The rest I made or is organic. Today’s lunch for us (packed lunch at uni) was the result of many weeks of hard work and just really made me so insanely proud. I promise Ill blog it all next week 🙂

    I am going to have to get that potato water starter going soon as I am having visions of all sorts of delectable home made treats. We are in the process of removing food from our gardens. Blackberries specifically…We are laying waste to them with great gusto and our hens and our 2 ducks are following in our footsteps scoffing everything that moves. Our blue Wyandotte mum Effel and her remaining 8 babies (she lost 4) are now our constant companions out in the garden and we have to be very careful where we put our feet and hands as the babies are only 3 weeks old and still somewhat fluffy balls. We have been dispatching roosters of late which was very hard to do but completely necessary and as we have a waste not want not policy here and are trying to recycle and reuse everything that we can (and having to be extremely lateral and wild hippyish in the process) we processed them and they are in the freezer. Free range young roosters are pretty tasty according to Steve ;). It’s a pity we don’t live closer, we could swap you some of those delicious sourdough loaves and tomatoes for some free range chook! Enjoy the fruits of your efforts and its great to see you using your available space to the max 🙂

      Hey Narf!

      I was wondering where you had disappeared to. I suspected you were enjoying your visit with your daughter. You will have to tell me what you ate!

      Do the sourdough starter. I got a very healthy starter going (finally) by using 1 cup water, 1/2 organic rye (had to get it from the health food store) and 1/2 cup organic flour. Every day I take 1 – 2 cups out of it (which I use for baking) and add the above back in to “feed” it. Its been going super – giving me lots of fantastic flavour, rise and power.

      I envy you your patch of paradise. Id love to have a few acres – perhaps two.

        Be careful what you wish for…it might just come true! I have no part of my body that isn’t covered in either blackberry piercings, mosquito bites or leech bites. We have been having to kill our roosters who have started behaving in a most Tasmanian male way of late and are having to work out how to lure our 7 feral cats into a cat trap and take them to be euthinased. Life is a constant run of hard decisions and buck stopping here moments. Add to that, we have to face our lecturer tomorrow after a month spent in the gaden doing pretty much bugger all and you can start to see why I haven’t been replying to anyone of late! Panic set in and some hard yards on the PC should be able to rectify that situation post haste! (That plus we will get him to show us photos of his visit to the Melbourne International Flower and Garden show…that should knock about 30 minutes off our meeting time ;))

          LOL I’m not saying it would be EASY. I know its far from that. But how rewarding.

          Also, BRAVO on trying to capture the kitties to have them euthanased. Contact your local wildlife organisation and let them know you are attempting to have feral cats removed from your property – they will probably loan you a possum trap which works wonders.

          Good luck with today’s lecture. I am the same, actually. I haven’t heard a peep from my lecturers despite three emails to them asking for help. Today should be interesting.

          Catch ya on the flop!
