Thanks, and please weed on…

Everything is growing, growing, growing… especially the dock, fireweed, Kikuyu, and the bill at the irrigation supplies shop….. but Feast Farms have invoiced their first customers – yay! (teeny amounts, but it’s a start).

Tom at Foxground – November 2012

Most importantly though, we (my wonderful, patient, often dragged along for the ride, family), are all still smiling and enjoying the learning. Many thanks to our wonderful markets customers each week, to Green Box and The Little Blowhole Cafe who are supporting our efforts, and of course to our friend Kerry, without whose generosity, none of this would be possible.

The gorgeous Kerry at one of our dawn meetings!

We had a visit from a Land journalist a few weeks ago, so keep an eye out for the early December issue of the paper for the ensuing story. Jacqueline is bringing Foodscape Tours to visit for the next three Saturdays which will be fun too. All the excitement just means one thing to me though… boy have I got a lot of weeding to do! Anyone want to come and help? I can pay in lettuces…. 🙂

Local School Fete

Saturday’s local school fete was a resounding success, particularly for the little people. But the entire Gerringong Community needs to be applauded for pulling this together. Green Box were there of course, as were tables of delicious locally produced fare.

It's great to be 8.

Cuddling Fodder

 

 

The petting zoo was a hit with Tom, who’ll catch and cuddle almost any animal – but not as entertaining to watch as the unceremonious dunking of our State Member of Parliament, or Uniting Church Minister – I though photos of this might get me into trouble!
