Food Shopping

Tuesdays shop which will hopefully last a week with just a top-up of milk, f & v.

The price of food is soaring where we live. Perth is one of the most expensive cities in Australia for food and it's only going to increase. I'm trying to grow more and more of our own, it's really satisfying to walk out the back door and pick some lettuce, some broccoli, some herbs, a lemon for that honey and lemon drink which is great for those sore throats. The garden is a bit bare at present. Plenty of silverbeet, a bit of broccoli and lettuce, beetroot, capsicums. The lemon tree is doing well. The lime tree, raspberries, passionfruit and boysenberries all going great. Can't wait for the hens to start laying. The kids are mostly enthusiastic about the garden and love the chooks to bits! I would love to get a mandarin tree next as we go through so many!

What's growing in your garden this winter?

Loved seeing your groceries - I'm such a snoop like that :-). As to garden. we don't really have anything growing except lemons at the moment. With my arthritis being so bad earlier in the year we didn't replant for Winter. Luckily I'm doing much better so should be up to replanting in the Spring (which I wasn't sure I was going to be able to do a few months ago).
