Plant something: plenty of weeding, spraying & feeding,

Harvest something: a couple of strawberries, lettuce thinnings, mint, parsley, basil, oregano, lemon thyme, a lemon.

Preserve Something: not this week.

Prep & Storage: ordered reference books on nutrition, urban farming & keeping goats (I can dream!). Stocked up on quinoa, walnuts & nutritional yeast at the health food shop 25% off sale.

Reduce Waste: usual composting & recycling. Took a ‘hankies not tissues’ vow, & have stuck to it well so far. Have started carrying a ‘spork’ in my bag, so I don’t use disposable cutlery while we’re out & about.

Build Community Food systems: had a backyard gardening love-in with some friends (ie talked gardening like women possessed)

Eat the Food: hummus with homegrown lemon juice, falafel wraps with homegrown salad; spinach wraps with homegrown herbs & lemon zest.
