Still Life With Wooden Spoon

Double Excitement

I have enjoyed dipping my toes into the vast blogosphere ocean lately, nurturing my little bloglet with posts, and exploring the grooviness of others’. I’ve been a food blog follower for a while now – a subject for a future posting all of its own – but some other local sites have well and truly caught my eye recently. They are, in no particular order:

Sprig – A Superlative Exploration of All Things Green
This is a great site for finding out more about various gardening projects, sustainability issues, and general green ephemera. A combination of authored, crowdsourced, and curated posts means that there is plenty going on here – all of it rather interesting.

Mint – A Retro Wonderland
If, like me, you have a fondness for all things retro, Mint will probably be your new favourite site. Whether you’re looking to buy some (exceptionally well priced) vintage smalls, or just like to perve over the retro-goodness, it’s well worth a visit.

Bridget McNulty – Local Author Extraordinaire
A peek into the mind of this rather groovy lady, with musings on life, cooking, and everything in between. The perfect place to get your recipe fix, or just escape an afternoon’s ennui.

So, the title of this post suggests not one, but two items of blogworthy excitement. The aforementioned trio of websites was, of course, the first of these, and now for the second. After years of resisting gardening, I was coerced into helping with the establishment of three rather sweet little permaculture pots of goodness. I should mention, though, that only the impending edibility of everything that was planted motivated me getting my hands dirty. Some beetroot, basil, coriander, lettuce and pak choi are all now nestled in their pots, so it’s only a matter of time before they become an ingredient for future posts. Marvellous.

yay! thanks for the shout out Chris.

The process of establishing the permaculture pots will be documented on Sprig in due course.
