Well there is definately tension in the air … when will the apricots and plums ripen?
And what effect will the scorching heat and then buckets of rain have on their progress?!
I am sure many of you are dusting your bottling and jamming (and maybe drying?) technology – enjoy the abundance of summer and stone fruits
(and good luck not over-indulging!)
Hope you can make it to the december WESTSIDE swapmeet with whatever goodies you have growing or cooking or jamming at the moment
Saturday 5th December
Same time, same place
10-11.30am (always first saturday of every month)
211 Nicholson St, Footscray (Grasslands)
Whatever you’ve got growing or to share – everyone and anything is welcome –
greens, citrus, eggs, honey, manure, coffee grinds, preserves, jam, homemade sourdough bread or biscuits, companion plants, herbs (think small bunches or root stock), seedlings, scones, smiles, and fruit and veg of course!
Hope to see you and your little urban harvest swappers for some community bonding and a great chat!
