August in Christine's garden

My time for vegie group again seemed to roll around really fast. The weather didn't look promising although the rain held off with the sun even peeking out around lunchtime!

Here are a few pics of what we got up to at my place yesterday:

Hard at work clearing the  beds in preparation for spring planting

The Footwear

Clearing out potatoes and digging over soil to receive summer crops in the coming weeks

Chitted potatoes from last year's harvests being planted out

Nice work, girls!

2 cups plain flour
4 tsp baking powder
2 tbs raw sugar
2 eggs
1 1/3 cups milk
2 tbs natural yoghurt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix the wet ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the dry ingredients and whisk to combine. Allow to stand if there is time, around 10-20 minutes is fine. If not, don't worry. Cook in preheated waffle maker according to your maker's directions.
To re-heat later, toast on low setting and serve warm with your favourite topping/sauce.

Thanks for your help, ladies. As always it was a pleasure to have you here!


  1. love the muddy one! did you find a home for the rest of your chitted potatoes? Hope the house survived. Daisy in the ground, cumquat into marmalade, burnt my sour dough and I definitely owe you for the plant stall.

  2. Still pondering over the rest of the potatoes. Cumquat into marmalade - your a star! Bugger about the s/dough, the cumquats would've been just the thing on a slice. I actually like it very well cooked - dark crusted, just slightly under burnt on the outside, at least then I know it's cooked inside! The muddy one was the highlight of the day.

  3. Have been eating the bread, good loaf first and was delicious with cumquat marmalade. Burnt tomorrow. You got some good group shots there - do you think any are good for a banner or pic to insert in the side bar?

  4. Great link about why children need to play in mud here. Think I could go a dose of Mycobacterium vaccae myself.
