A few recipes for things we have growing right now

Hi I was just watching the SBS food safari show when they showed a recipe for Kale. It's a really hardy plant that I didn't known about until we started growing it at the garden.

And we don't seem to have much luck getting our Papaya to ripen up before getting attacked by insects and bird or blown off by our august winds. So using them green is the perfect solution

Here's some photos of our Kale, its the one with the crinkly leaves.
And our green Papayas.

August in "The Garden"

Another glorious sunny winter weekend.
On Saturday we had a group of gardeners from Kiama keen to see the garden and how it works.

On Sunday we had another great roll up for our monthly Working bee. Gardens were watered and weeded, the chook house cleaned, fruit trees pruned, signs & notice boards were constructed and our pizza oven took another step in its construction.

And once again a great spread of food came together for our lunch. Topped off with a lovely apple crumble cooked in a camp over over a fire served with custard & chi tea!
