(Breakfast was vegemite toast of course. With optional toy poodle!)
Shopping at Wondai IGA. Note the uncrowded aisle.
Oh, erm, those purchases must belong to someone else's child ... am sure H. has grabbed the wrong trolley by mistake!
Helping Pa-Pa garden. Digging for potatoes. And in Miss 8's case, dancing.
'Look, there's one!' Luther, the not-so-mini daschund, (in jacket), and Zsa-Zsa the toy poodle, supervise.
They're mine, all mine!
(You've got to love it when a child gets excited over a possie of produce!)
Our box of organic goodies, ready to take home. They were grown with that extra-special ingredient: Love.
We're currently renting, so don't get to do much damage to the garden. However, we have herbs, strawberries, lettuce and other goodies growing in pots. We've had pumpkins and tomatoes taking over the back yard, but we miss having fruit trees.
We do our bit to reuse and recyle. We have a compost heap, worm farm, guinea pigs, cats, and a spoiled toy poodle. (Who actually won't eat any household leftovers unless it is skin-free chicken.) Nothing is ever wasted.
When we were part of a two-parent family and lived on our own property, we also had mulberry, lemon, and lime trees. These, we lovingly planted when the kids were babies, and they grew up raiding the trees whenever the fruit was in season.
How we miss those trees! (And we really miss that home too. And do you know what? One of the first things the buyers did was to rip out the mulberry and other fruit trees. Sigh.)
Anyway, in honour of gardening goodness, Pa-Pa's Produce, and for the love of mulberries, I have double passes for 3 lucky MIA followers to attend the Organic Expo and Green Show in Sydney in August. The double passes will be valid for either Saturday August 6 or Sunday August 7. The Show will be held at Hall 3, Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour. Opening times: Saturday 10am-6pm and Sunday 10am-5pm.
To enter, check you're following MIA, and leave a comment below. Do you have a green thumb, have you ever tipped worm juice onto a rosebush, and/or what's your favourite organic produce?
