This is a blog about what goes on in the Brock back yard and kitchen in sunny Alice Springs. Our family is one of a dieing race that cook everything from scratch, preserve at every opportunity and want to teach our kids where their food comes from - the meat as well as the 3 veg. We are also avid seedsavers and have trialled and tested many plants in the alice Springs conditions, which we then share with the community.

This weeks experimental Kimchi includes Fennel bulbs, Diakon radish, Raddicio, Parsley, Shallot, Garlic, Chinese cabbage, Carrots and Ginger. I am enjoying my first batch of Kimchi quite a lot so i thought I'd make another batch with some Fennel and see how it turned out.
I know i said that bee eaters mean spring but i now think that Orange Blossoms mean spring 2 weeks later.
The next batch of baby rabbits are about ready to make an appearance from out of the burrow.
The cabbages at the garden plots are growing in leaps and bounds as are the Beetroot. The Beetroot are doing quite well with the bit of liquid fertiliser they were given by mistake.
The Sno peas are in full production and are big and juicy. When i saved the seed from them last years i made a separate selection of large pods and it seems to have paid off.
