A lovely afternoon planting peas and aubergines. Roll on harvest time! Also dug out weeds in the lawn. I'm very proud of how my garden looks - 3 months ago a wasteland, now it's providing us with daily food. With plums ripening, I'm planning on bottles and bottles of plum sauce - I knew there was a purpose to all those empty wine bottles.

Annette, all my recipe books are back in Australia. Might take me a while to get into the swing of contributing seasonal recipes, but I am keen. Karen.

Tanks for the recipe group Annette. Do you have a picture of yourself for your profile yet?

Annette. Do you want to start a recipe group? It's easy, just add a group and call it 'Recipes'.

I'm thinking now about pot pourri. As my flower garden hasn't had time to establish yet, I would like to plant in the gaps all those scented plants that make a garden interesting. I remember vaguely a recipe for pot pourri taht included brandy - if anyone has this I would be grateful

Hullo Annette, Wow! I am blown away by your speedy response. I would love some pots to grow herbs in. Can you spare between 10-20? Any size will do, and I can just plant different herbs accordingly. Pete has explained that you will probably be up this way tomorrow. I would love to meet you. Regards, Karen.

Another fabulous Waiheke day, which makes up for the day I had in town yesterday confronting traffic and crowds...
So today I have planted a ginger plant, not the wild pest, but the one that I can hopefully harvest and cook with in a few months and also supply local ooooby-ites (what are we called, BTW?) with plants of their own if liked.
I have also planted borage to encourge bees. Which means I will have borage forever and ever.

By the way. Thank you sooo much for the tomato and basil. They are thriving.

Hi Annette. Thanks for joining the Waiheke Island group. Have you got a nice photo of yourself yet? It would be great to see some shots of your food gardens too.
