I turned free roadside stall quinces into jam - the best batch I have ever made. Super thick and tastes really good. Such a pretty jewel colour too.
A quick banana cake on Sunday afternoon. Trying really hard not to let anything go to waste. We always seem to have a surplus of bananas round here.
Vanilla cupcakes for George from a very clever friend - edible decorations on top of buttercream icing. Say no more! The kids loved them.
Freshly picked mushrooms from the garden. Mr H is going to eat them, me not so game.
Have planted in my winter vegetable patch. After keeping the soil covered in grass clippings for the last 6 months and then mixing through sheep poo and compost the soil is so much more healthier than last year. It was so compacted and dry but now is perfect for winter planting. I've planted savoy cabbage, silverbeet and kale. My sister n law Em is going to plant different vegetables in her garden so we can swap produce when the time comes.
I have only planted half the vegetable garden as I thought it would be too big, but I'm now thinking I may need more room. I still have the patch under the apricot tree planted up. I put down stepping stones to make it easier to navigate over the wetter months. And a border down one side of marigold plants.
An old Dove Cote from our neighbours. I've been cleaning it out and will put in some hay for any new bird families that may want to take residence over the winter. Hanging bird seed feeders are next.
Yay! It's that time of year again.........Feijoa season!
Farmers market bread and tomatoes for lunch.
Snippets from around our home.......
My growing washi tape pile. Love the stuff! I have had a couple of months of Birthday and Swap parcel wrapping and I love being able to use my washi tape.
Hope your weekend was a good one, here's to a happy week!
