While recording this episode, it dawned on me that I've reached the point of sowing the seed anew that created the end result I explained all the way back at the beginning of the podcasts...the spring vision in episode one, last year. So although there's a giant gap in information yet, 'til we reach full circle (which will complete the full cycle of a year in the kitchen garden), now is the time to sow and recreate that romantic vision for this coming spring (or at least something akin to it!) to regale you with down the track....in episode 12. As well, of course, for you to do the same in your own garden....because if I can do it, anyone can! Now there's a challenge for the coming months!
The overhaul of crop rotation is all but done, with a few stragglers still running behind. New growth of autumn/winter veg is tentatively on its journey, while we continue to eat the bounty that early autumn delivers. As always, I share the warts and all...the good, the bad and the just plain ugly!
I've been so preoccupied with away events and crop rotation that I missed sending a reminder, but there are a handful of places left at AUTUMN inTHE KITCHEN GARDEN on SATURDAY 11 MAY. Why don't you join what is an already enthusiastic group who are coming along? We'll bring the podcast to life! And yes, I fully intend making Torta di Melanzane for lunch....(you'll get the connection once you listen!).
All details and the booking form are here and of course, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
It was terrific to catch up with many of you at the Collectors' Plant Fair last month, which was as exciting as ever; and also to make new friends in South Australia, at Grand Cru Estate's open garden, with irrepressible Roz Seppelt - she's quite a gal! And I got to talk a lot about kitchen gardening! Alongside bee man Doug Purdie. It was a fun weekend.
Winter / spring events coming soon....but don't forget to put OPEN GARDEN on 23 & 24 NOVEMBER into your calendar! Things are happening behind the scenes...it's going to be a fabulous one, celebrating 30 years! Check the web page for details so far....
In the meantime, I do hope you enjoy episode eight of the podcast!
Very best wishes,
