Plant something:  Planted cos lettuce. Baked bread rolls.

Harvest something: lettuce (radiccio, cos, mizuna), parsley, basil, chillis, spring onions, nasturtium leaves, collards, tuscan kale, 3 snow peas.

Preserved something: jerusalem artichoke relish

Waste not: usual composting, worm-farming & recycling. Good use of left-overs, and items hitting their use-by dates.

Want not: Continued to sort through freezer & pantry (we’re planning to buy a house in a couple of months, & I don’t want to pack & move a huge stockpile)

Build Community Food Systems: Signed up for a 4 week trial run with a CSA fruit & veggie box.

Eat the food: ‘Not meat’ pastries with pantry & freezer odds & ends;  lots of homegrown greens in sandwiches; veggie & bean soup with jerusalem artichokes, collards & kale, and homemade rolls; last bits of last years’ pickled beetroot & onion jam (with soy dogs & salad); apple/plum crumble; homemade lime juice cordial, home-brewed beer & ginger beer to drink.
