Like almost every other Australian in the world today we celebrated with a u-beaut Aussie barbie. And as is tradition in my family, lunch was followed by an afternoon of fun and games. Kelly Pool was the game of the day.
Ah Kelly Pool… fun for the whole family!
When we got home it was straight out to the garden for a bit of a clean up and a hunt for some tasty greens for Chickie Boombah and of course for tonight’s dinner: Stir fried ginger greens.
So, there I was thinking “I might leave those carrots another week and see how they’re getting on”. I decided to pinch off a few leaves for Boombah when I saw a hint of orange poking up out of the soil and thought, “ok, I’ll just check on this one”. I think you can tell from my reaction that I was quite surprised at what I saw. Thanks to Paul for being so quick with the camera!
Yep, she’s a big one!
And that’s not all. Check out the size of the sugarbeet. Its well and truly as big as my head.
I have been thinking about making a beetroot cake for ages so… I’m off to the kitchen to experiment.
Happy Australia Day!
