We were away for 3 nights, so I don’t have a huge amount of activity to report.

Plant something:  wanted to put in broccoli rabe, but it seems too hot still – so no.

Harvest something: lettuce (radiccio, cos, mizuna), spinach, parsley, oregano, lemon thyme, basil, chillis, cucumber.

Preserved something: not this week.

Waste not: usual composting, worm-farming & recycling. Thanks to Jamie Oliver’s example, Mr B saved our pumpkin seeds, and toasted them for snacks rather than throwing them in the compost.

Want not: Did lots of research on different styles of water tanks, bought yummy case of biodynamic wine direct from NSW growers.

Build Community Food Systems: not this week

Eat the food: LOTS of veggie paella – a great recipe from the Millenium cookbook, adapted as a ‘mostly pantry’ dish. Dahl with veggie curry & rice. Lots of homegrown salad. Improvised vegan ‘quiche’, with silken tofu base.
