It's well into September now and I'm running a little late with my regular post, but here it is finally, in pictorial form this month: The Slow Living Month journal that links in every month with Christine at Slow Living Essentials. Pop over to Christine's blog and check out some of the other great slow living activities that people have been up to this month.nourish
|Lots of sourdough breadmaking this month...|
|...actually the breadmaking is getting so serious |
I've started buying flour in bulk!
|Our three new garden beds arrived and I planted the first one |
out with potatoes. The other two will be planted with tomatoes
and capsicums in a few weeks when the weather stops dropping
below zero at night
|This month I harvested silverbeet, kale, carrots, fennel, broccoli,|
peas, celery, pak choy, rocket, radishes and the very first rhubarb.
Even though it was winter I still managed to harvest around 75%
of our vegies.
|All the girls are now laying, so we've stopped buying eggs! |
The eggs are tiny but taste sensational, and the food
miles are... steps!
|My granny blanket continues to grow slowly, slowly, |
and I'm loving playing with my new camera to try to
work out how to control it rather than it controlling itself!
|What a porky month! A delivery of half a pig by the lovely |
Farmers Lauren of Bundarra Berkshires and Anna of
Plains Paddock Lamb, and then a farm tour of McIvor Farm!
|I've been gathering up lots of great books to read this month. |
Here's part of the stash.
|My friend A and I launched our new website Whispered Workshops|
and have undertaken the first couple of workshops. What a great way
to spend a fun afternoon with friends, share knowledge and learn
new skills. Check out the site, we'd love you to get involved!
|Sunny days and discovering beautiful new places|
in the countryside, all while getting to borrow a
beautiful sports car for the month
- doesn't get better than that (but not so slow!!)
