We have been trying for ages to grow our own organic vegs and herbs and although we have had a lot of success, the birds love them too. We have planted three lots of lettuce and apart from the first lot the birds had the rest. So... we have covered the latest lot with wire, lets hope we get some of these. We also bought a worm farm today, I am quite excited about that. At least we feel we are contributing to a sustainable environment, even only in a small way.

my son and his family went to Halls Gap for christmas holidays just when their apricot tree was ready to yield it's fruit. So over I went and picked a truck load ( well almost) and cooked up a load of apricot jam and liqueur.
Of cause it would't have been so nice unless served in a pretty conserve pot with a silver spoon( op shop find $3. The liqueur went into pretty bottles tied with ribbon and liqueur glasses for next christmas gifts
