Plant something: warrigal spinach, pomegranate tree

Harvest something: endive, lettuce thinnings, spring onion, mint, basil, 3 teeny heads of garlic, tuscan kale, broccoli leaves

Preserve Something: Mr B started his first batch of  home-brewed beer… we’ve bottled it, and the tasting countdown begins.

Prep & Storage: Independence Days finally arrived! I love it, thank you Sharon.

Reduce Waste: usual composting & recycling. Put the timer back in the shower, and have resolved to pay attention to it. Started summer water saving regime ie catching the cold water that usually runs down the drain (during the heat-up phase). While it’s raining now, apparently summer will be dry here. Still using hankies, not tissues. Sourced stakes for my beans & a serviceable CD rack at the local re-use centre. Made great use of leftovers 🙂

Build Community Food systems: Visited a local food fair, very inspiring.

Eat the Food: homegrown salad, veggie burgers with homegrown garlic, veggie/chickpea parcels with homegrown greens & garlic.
