Our eldest, Annabelle, celebrated her eighth birthday with a picnic in the bush. Along with our neighbours and one set of grandparents we shared cake and a simple fire cooked dinner. To add a touch of spring and celebration to the occasion we created this flower table entirely from wild flowers, bits from the garden and recycled containers.
I experiment a lot with bread but sometimes it is great to get back to the plain white sourdough loaves that started my bread journey. Every time I bake bread, particularly in the wood oven I learn something new or take away a little bit of extra knowledge.
Our current horse situation has outgrown this little horse yard. I have decided to put this space to use and plant it up with summer vegetables. In particular, pumpkins which have a habit of completely overrunning my actual vegetable garden. It is the perfect space as it has previously been fertilised by horses, it is fenced securely and there is a water supply. It doesn't look like much now but watch this space.
Meanwhile, back in the actual vegetable garden this Long Florence zucchini is progressing well.
Thyme is just so delicate and pretty isn't it?
Home grown asparagus, eggs and coriander. Simple ingredients with so much potential to be turned into something tasty.
Happy Friday friends, I hope you have had a lovely week!
