Opportunistic gardening and a pantry re-stock

Working at home today, I took advantage of the rain to feed the veggie beds with pelleted chook manure – as I look out the window, I can see it’s being watered in nicely.

Did another bulk shop this week too – 5 kilos of arborio rice, a kilo of fair trade coffee, 2 kilos of tahini and a kilo of quinoa from Honest To Goodness. The quinoa is Australian grown, and has to be washed to prevent bitterness (unlike some imported quinoa). I bought a kilo to try it, and if I like it, I’ll buy 5 kilos next time. It’s not cheap, but it’s organically grown in Australia, and given the current world economic rumblings, I’m very happy to support local farmers.
