Harvest time!

I had a craving tonight for fresh vegetables so went out hunting in the garden to see what I could find. This is what I found.

Two eggs from my chooks today so I have at least two laying at the moment. It's quite strange - when I go check on them there is only one who is obviously broody so maybe there are three laying for they are taking turns?

Dinner tonight was grilled chicken with steamed zucchini and silverbeet and with fresh sweetcorn. I have to tell you, the corn was simply amazing - so sweet and tender. The monster zucchini at the rear of the photo is sitting in the fridge while I figure out what to do with it. It may well end up in a pie or cake.

I went and had my massage on Friday. I tried a new place out and opted for a fairly deep massage to sort out my aches and pains. The massage itself was wonderful - a lovely Thai woman used her magic hands and ironed out a lot of the kinks I had in my back. Sadly I won't be returning to this place - the front-desk service was pretty shoddy (to the point of being rude) and the cleanliness etc of the towels was very questionable - plus the towels themselves looked almost threadbare and ancient.


  1. Sauteed zucchini with onions and butter, and then either lemon or cheese. So good! I can't wait to start planting next month (peas, but still!). Lovely veggies :)

  2. Dinner sounds delicious. Isn't it nice you can make the whole dinner or most of it from your own land?! The Thai massage is wonderful whenever I've had it, especially with Thai massage balls. I'm sorry that you had questionable hygiene if your masseuse was good.

  3. Melanie - thanks for the zucchini suggestion. I may try that tonight.

    Joyful - I do feel happy eating food I have produced. I am keen to do a lot more of that in the future.

  4. I grate zucchini into everything, coleslaw, stir fry, curries, salads, casseroles - you name it every meal in our house will contain grated zucchini.
