Choosing edible flowers


Recently I read about Linda Brennan's new book 'A Delicious Bunch' on the Birdsong Market Garden blog when Racheal wrote a review of the book which she had been given for her birthday. I checked our local library catalogue to see if it was available there and it certainly was so I borrowed it to have a look-see. It is a fascinating read which is beautifully presented and soon had me checking our garden to see if we had anything growing in the flower department that was featured in the book.

Finished at last!

A couple of months ago I finished sewing a rag quilt for my almost five month old grandson but I procrastinated about doing the washing and drying part to completely finish off it so made sure I got that done today as I am sending up a box of goodies up on the bus to my grandchildren in the Outback this week. They won't be visiting for Christmas so it will be a quiet one here.

After the rain...

This past week has been a wet one for many areas of Queensland and while we didn't receive anything like the rainfall totals experienced by those on the coast etc. we did manage to pick up some decent totals. Some areas of the garden are like a jungle which gets me down as I can't dig out all the weeds as some have just grown so tall and thick so I took a break from attacking it all to see how the flowers and veggies have benefited from the recent rain.

It's Market Time

At this time of year there seem to be markets popping up everywhere. Yesterday Hand Made Under the Stars  was held at the Cobb and Co Museum and as usual it featured a vast array of crafts which would make great Christmas gifts. Yesterday was also the start of the Bush Christmas Exhibition which finishes on the 9th December.
