Things have dried out this month as the rain has only been misty. Day temps are on the rise and it really feels like spring. We still had 11 potential frost days with the lowest of -3C halfway through the month.
Doesn't include Greens fed to the chooks on a daily basis or herbs picked for use in the kitchen for cooking or tea making. For Salads, Juice and Stirfries I have been picking Silverbeet, Chinese Broccoli, Celery, Coriander, Cress, Gotu Kola, Lettuce, Kale, Parsley, Beetroot Leaves and Lebanese, Upland and Water-Cress which are not always weighed. The winter harvest is much lower than other months but we continue to eat out of our stored food supply.
