I’ve been taking Sharon Astyk’s Independence days challenge for a few months now. Thought I’d post results here, as well as on her blog:

Plant something:  planted new spring onions & coriander, and the fittingly named lazy housewife bean.
Harvest something: endive, basil, spinach, broccoli, tuscan kale, silverbeet, lettuces, sneaky strawberries
Preserve Something: froze tofu
Prep & Storage: Finally cracked & bought Rob Hopkins’ ‘Transition Handbook’, made a bulk batch of pancake mix
Build Community Food Systems: re-worked my favourite vegan energy bar & bulk pancake mix recipes for the food co-op mailing list.
Reduce Waste: Lavish use of leftovers for breakfasts & lunches all week, re-planted the roots of a bunch of spring onions, plus usual composting & recycling.
Eat the Food: lentil burgers with oven chips; white bean & veg pie; homemade broccoli pizza
