It’s been cold this week but it didn’t stop us from getting the winter veg planted. I mean it wasn’t terrential rain and howling wind like last week! I like the rain, us gardeners do, it’s gold for the garden, but that sideways rain that slaps you in the face I can do without when I’m working in the dirt.
We’ve planted a few basics for the cool season, Kale, Onion, Lettuce, Rocket, Peas, Carrots, Spinach, Broccoli, Celery, and a handful of herbs.
Tonight I made a pumpkin soup from our store of summers pumpkin, and for the added flavour I used a Ballarat blue cheese from Goldfields brand, which was a bit indulgent because they (Goldfields Cheese Co) have stopped making that particular blue cheese, which is a real pity. Please, please, please, Ballarat people support the locals. And for everyone else around the world, do the same. These local dudes need your support.
