I was out on the Kabota on Tuesday..ploughing..yes you heard me..ploughing the top paddock. ‘Twas a bit slow and sticky but it’s turned over and looking great. The chickens (the girls) spent the day scratching around and ended up with 2 inches of mud on there claws, running like they had boots on. Looking forward to more vegies like these!

We’ve got a meeting of the head honchos this morning (minus Ally, who’s currently winging her way to Australia as I write) to go through the Show Us Your Signature Dish contest entries and pick the four finalists. Great response, great recipes and just a bit of fun. Thank you for watching what we’re doing and playing along at home. But thank you more for coming in to the café, because then we get to see you! And you get to buy food and coffee! It’s a perfect, symbiotic relationship!
