Why hello again! We have sadly, been very quiet in cyberspace, and we’ve decided to officially take a short hiatus until Honey finishes her doctoral thesis. We have still been busy enjoying food in all its glory where we can, and have had delicious experiences in Singapore, Bali, Malaysia, Canberra and Sydney over the last few months, and hopefully we will be able to share these with you very soon when we come back to regular blogging.
In the meantime, we wanted to share some good news with all of you: we finally bit the bullet and are one step closer to living sustainably- we got chooks!
Chickpea and Mrs Brown are 20 weeks old and seem to be settling into their new home in our backyard. There have been a few escape attempts and hilarious episodes of us chasing them around the garden, but we have now safely clipped their feathers so they should happily remain within their fence, away from our veggie garden! As we learnt from Celia, the chooks are in a moveable pen so they will move all around our backyard, helping us to till the soil and keep our grass in control. It has been fascinating watching them so far, scratching around and digging holes for dust baths.
The girls happily pecking away from the feeder that Soy so proudly made from scratch!
After 2 weeks of waiting, we got our first egg 2 days ago! We hope all of you are doing brilliantly, and until next time, we wish you many new and exciting food adventures!
