Slap and fold bread 002

"Uh? Moi? Harsh critic? ;-\ The bread looks fine, taste test and report to follow? I gave up on Sourdough, couldn't get a crust a denture-user could chew. For all the bread we eat, the bought stuff does us."

"At last, after many tries at making Sourdough, some success. This one will not be used as a substitute boat anchor, or to practice shot putt with. Thanks Sophie for your demo and take a bow you have achieved the impossible!"

Roger's May report- Growing anti Inflammatory plants , etc.

Posted on May 15, 2018 at 8:18 10 Comments

G'day,

How are things at your place right now in the garden? I have noticed the garden changing - drying out for a while now with no rain to help.

A few weeks ago everything was flourishing, there was moisture in the ground and  watering needed to be minimal.…
