Yeah, not seeing how they farm the quails is a big disappointment. I don't think Joseph realised we couldn't do that when he organised the visit. Will go one day with the Elaines though to pick up some meat and eggs and visit the markets as well.
Hope this rotten wind dies down today - it's my least favourite weather.
Although Im miles away at the moment, I am really looking forwad to getting back home and getting my fingers dirty again. Being in the UK has taught me so much about a different way of life, much of which is completely different to our sub tropical climate, but I know there are things I can take home and put to good use. If nothing else, its giving me a renewed zest for my desire to grow my own produce, cook and enjoy the simple things in life.
And I cant wait to get my girls (4 chooks) back when I get home.
I am looking forward to using your site as a wonderful knowledge tool - so happy I found it!
Would Brisbane Seedsavers be interested in a spot at the Hillbrook Sustainability Day event? I have been trying unsuccessfully to contact you throught the Seedsavers website. We have many stalls coming on th day promoting 'grow your own food" in the Green Car Park and would love seedsaving to be showcased as well. Sophie Munns will be having her "Homage to the Seed Project" stall promoting her seed message. LMK if you are free this Sat from 10am - 4pm or part thereof?
Ah, you and Scarlett are two good girls lol. I've put up with the gluten allergy for so long that I can hardly imagine life without it. Would be lovely/incredible to think our Australian scientists can actually achieve something like this.
The sceptic in me thinks the media is over rating what has been achieved so far. The Coeliac Society put this research (desensitising) to us some time back more as a way to avoid being contaminated on the odd occasion where we get exposed to gluten, not as a "remedy". Would be wonderful to think that it is a remedy.
Thanks for the welcome Donna. I actually have been on here for ages, I was in the first 16 to 20 that subscribed and I can see my own old profile but I can't access it because there is no email or password that will work on it. If you are moderating, feel free to remove it.
It has been a struggle and in the end I gave up and created this new one.
Good to be actively back again. Gabrielle
