The forecast is:

VEGGIES: chinese broccoli, brussel sprouts, cucumber, garlic, swedes, english spinach, potatoes, pak choy

FRUIT: apples, bananas, kiwifruit, and new season navel oranges.

This is the last week of our 4 week experiment, and I’ve signed up for another 4 weeks. We’re ordering in 4 week blocks, as we’re not sure when we’ll spot the right house, or where it will be. I’m loving Sydney Food Connect‘s stats:

Fair: 40% return to farmers!
Healthy: Organic & chemical free
Local: Food miles ~200km
Direct: Purchased from farmers
Community : Over 14 local pickup points

We were invited out for dinner last Wednesday for a friend’s birthday, so didn’t quite follow the plan… but if I put it here, I won’t have to get creative after a long day.

Tentative menu plans:

Monday Late dinner (soup) for me, MrB will have dinner at his aunt’s place.

Tuesday Roast veggies (including swede & brussel sprouts)

Wednesday Veggie/tofu noodle stirfry.

Thursday Pumpkin, pecan & spinach risotto

Friday Soysages, mash & stir-fried greens with garlic (a chance to sample my home-grown jerusalem artichoke relish!)
