Over the past month we have had a few visitors to the farm. We do a tour of the block explain where we will build the house, gardens, chicken pen and put the pigs. During these visits we stop to raid the wild raspberries growing on the hill side. We have two varieties growing; a larger red plump one which is little sourer than the tiny yellow sugar hit one that tastes as sweet as honey and very refreshing. We still have loads on our raspberry bushes, it only dawned on me the other day to use them for jam. Do you think you would eat yellow raspberry jam?
Recently I got a new job at a nursery I am on to week three. My hat goes off to all you bloggers out there who work full-time and still blog. Over the past two weeks I have been so physically exhausted that my body just wants to curl up and read. I have built a few muscles and lost two kilo’s since starting which is good. Though my back and shoulders are not in it for the long run. The plus side of working with plants is that I am learning more about them, how they grow and different varieties. I am slowly working on fitness and losing a few kilo’s always helps. I might just look fit and fabulous at the food conference in Adelaide this weekend. Yet my body will be aching all over.
Sometimes people over commit and I guess I am one of those people. I am studying working a 30 hour week, write weekly recipes for several local papers, mentoring beginner food bloggers, nurturing my garden and going to the gym. Life is busy yet plentiful. So I have to apologise in advance for the lack of blog posts, I will try to keep it up. Hopefully my routine starts to develop so I can catch up on all the blogs I miss reading.
In two weeks we will be doing our first harvest of the garden. You can take a look at facebook with the pictures of our tiny veggies.
