Backyard Bakers

I was going to limit this to a bread makers' group.  But, on reading a few of my baking books, there are just too many wonderful goodies out there that need to be included.  If you bake it in an oven and it tastes darn fine, then post it here. I'll try to make some relevant threads to help keep us organised.  See More

Good Evening Terry, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF). Although you don't live in Brisbane I am sure you will enjoy the site. Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One is the GARDEN VISITS, 2016 GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR here. If you are ever in our part of the world, I am sure you would enjoy visiting our member’s gardens. We have members who grow many different kinds of Gardens, Permaculture, Aquaculture, Wicking Beds, Traditional and many more. The GV's are usually held once a month. At the GV's we share cuttings, plants, produce, seeds, knowledge as well as a good chat and a lovely Homemade Morning Teas.  

We have many subjects of interest, if you have any questions I am sure we would have a member or site available to answer that question.

You may like to go into your page and change the Pea Leaf Avatar for one of your own, it makes it a little more personal and as soon as we see your own Avatar we know who it is. Please enjoy BLF.
