Thanks for visiting my blog. I welcome you to take your time and browse , visiting my bush garden and discovering the wonders of my city within a national park; Blue Mountains National Park. Via my blog you will travel with me through the successes, trials and tribulations of gardening on a bush block.

Day 42/366

Crop and Swap Saturday


This is my response to our local Crop & Swap Culinary Challenge.

For lunch we ate lemon verbena gluten free bread topped with plum paste, cucumber, chives and (shop bought) Camembert cheese.
We drank ginger beer garnished with limes,and for afters we had white  chocolate and berry muffins.
The table was decorated with a Queensland Blue pumpkin surrounded by rose geranium leaves.
In the fridge, apricot jam awaits tasting.
This meal cost us nothing (except for the cheese).  The food on our table was swapped with herbs grown in our garden, and one little hand knitted rabbit called Rosie.
But that's another story.


  1. Very nice! Everything looks beautiful!

  2. What a great idea! Your meal sounds delicious :)

    1. Hi Helen, I love attending the Crop and Swaps and always seem to come away with much, much more than I take! It's amazing some of the produce available even though it is a small group.

  3. lemon verbena gluten free bread sounds perfect - any chance you got the receipe?

    Love Leanne

    1. Hi Leanne, unfortunately I don't have the recipe. It was absolutely delicious and I wouldn't mind having it, I can tell you! The young woman that baked it likes to experiment with blends of gluten free flours and the bread had a wonderful texture too.
      I'll have to ask next Crop and Swap.
