11th April, 2012 —
It is hard to believe that Day 7 has already been and gone. Over the coming week or so I will put together a final note on the challenge and what we achieved as a family. I will also put together all the yummy recipes for anyone who has asked about them!
Day 7 for us was a bit of a mixed bag. Beau shared our wonderful local produce with our many customers in Sydney, at Orange Grove market in Leichhardt.
Harry and I attended a very special first birthday and then travelled to the South Coast for a day visit with family.
Unfortunately this ment that eating locally for all of us was a bit difficult with all the travel and market craziness. Instead I decided that our last day of the challenge would be a day that we share some of our wonderful local produce with others.
Beau passed this easily with our market store. Harry and I on the other hand scrambled through our fridge and cupboards to create a ‘local share’ package for our coastal family. What we couldn’t find in our fridge or cupboards at home, we found in the fridges and on the shelves at A Slice of Orange on our way through town.
The attached are some of the pics of our final snacks/meals of the Local Harvest Challenge.
