Plant something:  pak choy, silverbeet, rocket, endive, tuscan kale.

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

Preserved something: 2.5 litres of lime juice cordial (I modified this Stephanie Alexander recipe). Mr B started 20 litres of ginger beer – which we hope will be yummier than the last batch, since it had a horribly bitter aftertaste.

Waste not: usual composting, worm-farming & recycling.

Want not: Started a fridge & pantry inventory. Restocked tinned tomatoes. Purchased a hand-cranked mouli (strainer).

Build Community Food Systems: Sorted stored kitchen things (we doubled up a bit when we combined households), boxed up the good stuff to donate to local youth refuge, twenty10.

Eat the food: Chickpea cutlets (from pantry items) plus home-grown salad. Blackbean and sweet potato chilli. Vegan lasagne (from the freezer clearout).
