Just a quick walk around ….. the basil is ready for pesto and we cant keep up with the cucumbers…. and the Dahlia reminds me of my Grandfather …..
next time you join me the blog might look a little different, I am in need of a spruce up and bit of a change :)
We have to cover these beauties very well ( I use a net from a babies crib ) as all sorts of wild life love to eat them even the chooks !!! blueberry pancakes for desert tonight …..:)
I have booked into a stall site at a Friday night market on the coast its called the Miami Marketta
I have never been in love with the early start for regular markets nor the time they eat into our weekends so this may work for me. So if you are around the coast on Friday the 13th come to 23 Hillcrest Parade MIAMI and visit this hip little precinct, they usually have live music, great food too.
On the local front…. up the road at Binna Burra Lodge the gift store is being renewed with lots of Local goods… so I have placed a few pieces on consignment.
So I have been a busy little bee….. bundling and stitching.
We had a wonderful trip away to my birthplace of Crookwell NSW on the southern tablelands of NSW, little trip down memory lane catching up with Aunts, an Uncle and Cousins. The 90th birthday afternoon tea was a feast as is the country way …..
On my lead up to Zest Fest, Open Studio and Shape Shifter with India I have neglected our vege patch…… lucky for me tomatoes are like Triffids I picked 1.3 kg of red and yellow and pear and round Tomatoes !!! The orchard is also over flowing at this time of year thus the name Zest Fest for our community festival ….. we have Seville Orange, Blood Orange, Mandarins and Limes at the moment ( no scurvy in this house)
After a stunning day of sunshine I did a little weeding and picked some produce from the vege patch and garden….. have the rose leaves in an iron mordant overnight and will bundle them tomorrow.
Its all happening the citrus is ripening, flowers abound and this is our Winter … why would I live any where else cold enough to sweeten our citrus but warm enough daytime to want to be out side .
Wow ….. how the time fly’s bye looking at the dates and its July already . Since my last short post we Sal , Mark and I held our Zest Fest at the local school hall .
A great day for all…. lots of networking, great food and music . We have just had a meeting to start the plan for next years…I had a very successful stall that day sold lots and inspired a few to learn to felt .
I discovered Pomegranate Pink in the process of dyeing some scarves for my market stall . Fab colour and a friend invited me to try Virburnum berries and while collecting them noticed some berries on a dianella grass
( Thanks Sara ) the colour is superb
