Everything I have been doing lately is all about food and it has been so much fun. My first batch of vegetables are finally planted. This has been two years in the planning so it’s a big thing for me. They are all safe and sound, away from browsing animals and the baking sun in their little cool cloth house. I made raised beds using recycled broken vegetable crates with shade cloth liners.
Functional but not very pretty. I will be cutting off all the excess cloth to neaten things up a bit.
My whole food healthy eating plan is continuing well and I am feeling a difference already. yesterday we had this super fritata for breakfast
and made some homemade cold drink using rosella flowers and lemon grass. It turns bright red once it has been in the fridge for an hour or two, sweetened with a touch of honey and absolutely delicious.
so much food on my mind, I even painted a cabbage
This painting is one of six macro paintings I am doing to hang as a group in my kitchen. They are on stretched canvas so will not need to be framed. I have also completed one of a slice of lemon but I am not happy with it.
I wonder how many other people have ever painted a cabbage
