Plant something: Marigolds

Harvest something: spring onions, purslane, mixed lettuce, basil, mint, corn salad, (under ripe) chillis.

Preserve Something: Kim chi, peach salsa with our chillis.

Prep & Storage: Restocked dried beans. Cooked & froze fava beans for use over the next couple of weeks. Ordered a year’s supply of multivitamins.

Reduce Waste: Purchased a big mixed bag of seeds at a friend’s garage sale. Not sure how many will germinate, but if any do, it’ll be fine. Usual composting & recycling.

Eat the Food: First ever attempt at home-made seitan (from the Veganomicon recipe). Also first ever attempt at Robin Robertson’s recipe for slow-cooked BBQ seitan & veggies. The slowcooker recipe was a little underseasoned for my taste, but the seitan was a great success. Made chickpea cutlets again (yum) topped with the little bit of peach salsa leftover from bottling. Peach crumble for dessert.

Build Community Food Systems: Invited 2 household of friends (who are vegan-friendly & love gardening, & live within walking distance) to dinner – phase one of my plan to develop a dinner co-op.
