This made me smile!
It’s amazing how much my herbs and veggies have grown in a week. The weeds have also taken off as well, which hardly seems fair. The apple trees are full of blossom and my dwarf nectarine has three little fruits forming.
I have to do a talk at a meeting for the thermomix at the end of the month. Guess what I’ll be speaking about? Growing your own fruit and veggies (and chooks, probably) and why we should all be doing it, even in a small way. I’ll show photos and bring in my stash of seeds and some small envelopes so people can take some away and start planting. Then I’ll make them this. (I’m not sure how I’ll link it in… it looks a bit heartless on the face of it, doesn’t it? “Once your chook stops laying eggs, here’s what you can do with her!”) Ah well, I’ve got a couple of weeks to come up with a slightly more caring link.
I really like the idea of combining what I’m doing in the garden with what I’m doing in the kitchen and also talking about the many benefits to the whole family about growing some of your own food.
Don’t you love it when different strands of your life combine?
