You Capture – Food

August 27th, 2009 by Heidi

I found this blog a while back and have been meaning to take part in the weekly ‘You Capture’ and just not quite managed it. Today I saw the post and thought ‘Food’ it’s a bit last minute but surely I can manage something. Plus I had no idea what to blog about!

Mostly Heritage Tomatoes

August 25th, 2009 by Heidi

As I might have mentioned before I got a little carried away ordering tomato seeds this year. Well to be fair I did cut it down as far as I possibly could, but it was still 12 varieties that made the ‘short’ list.

August 16th, 2009 by Heidi

It has been a very busy but rather productive weekend. Although yesterday we did take the afternoon off and enjoyed a very impressive BBQ with my cousins. It was a glorious summer afternoon, and I can’t imagine a better way to have spent it than with good company, good food and of course a little cider!

Homesteading for Health!

August 14th, 2009 by Heidi

I had a bad experience with our last doctor (read: he was an insensitive jerk) and as a result would not go back to see him. Fortunately we moved house and far enough across town that it warranted finding a new doctor. I promise we didn’t just move because I hated the GP!

Is it me?

August 10th, 2009 by Heidi

Apologies for the ranting nature of this post but I am frustrated and it is very hot today!
