Then the food arrived. Chard and onion quiche, pea and tomato bread, pea and beef patties, spiced rhubarb chutney, rhubarb and custard cake, beetroot and chocolate cake and a little homemade mayo! And it was all gone by lunchtime! The great thing was that the kids didn't even notice the beetroot in the chocolate cake and came back for more!
This got us thinking about what else we could make to sell at the stalls we have this August. A brainstorming session was participated by all!
We then did some harvesting of beetroot, chard, rhubarb and potatoes. When Jen and Chris were emptying the potato tyres of soil, we heard a small scream and everyone rushed over to find 4 baby rodents, with their eyes not even open yet! We took a picture and then covered them up and repositioned the tyre to allow mum to come back.
We also received two wonderful donations. The first from Alison. She brought along a car load of unwanted plants for us to use in the Garden. And then Jen donated her grass clippings and chicken bedding/manure from home to the compost heap :D
A fantastic weekend!
