Kim and Ben have been having a ball over the last two days.
Yesterday, Ben got out a cookbook and decided to cook Chocolate Mousse! Here he is in action.
Beating the egg whites (all home laid by our lovely chooks of course). The dogs got scrambled yoke for dinner!
Strike the pose. Nice skills Ben.
Here is Ben and I about to scoff down our chocolate mousse! It was light and fluffy, tasted delicious, and he was very proud of himself. Organic dark chocolate as well. Well done Son!
Today, Kim and Ben harvested all of our winter carrots at my request, as I have been so busy of late that I just have not gotten around to it.
All harvested, topped and washed. I love the funny ones. You always get a few, which is part of the fun.
The scales topped out at 1.594 kg, which is not a lot for 6 months growth, however they are the sweetest carrots that we have eaten all year. They won’t last very long, as they will be in our belly’s over the next few days. These are a good size, but if you want to see a whopper, check out the carrot that Darren grew over at Green Change! Now that is a harvest. I love carrots, no fuss if you plant them in between rows of onions and just leave them be. Just make sure the soil is friable before you plant, and keep the soil moist. Easy peasy.
