March 2018 Swap @ Mooroolbark

We celebrated the 2nd anniversary at Mooroolbark a month earlier because Claire didn’t want to miss the party!  If you didn’t make it, you’ve missed the yummy honey cake 😋  And the cute little doggie was not for swapping…

March 2017 Swap @ Bayswater North

It was an eventful month with the move to Warranwood (from Wonga Park) and Celebrate Mooroolbark Festival,  in addition to a swap happening each week!  So much so that I’ve forgotten about the photos sitting on my desk for the month

Preserving Basil by Ros

As promised, here are my notes on the mini workshop thanks to Ros.  Here’s a picture of the lovely Ros and the tempting pesto and other basil preserves. Dried basil – best to use dehydrator as basil will other oxidise

Basil and mini workshop

For some reason, I haven’t been very successful with my vege garden this year.  The sweet basil seedling I got from the swap, remained the same size for a few months and have now been dug out by birds 😦
