Garden To Table

We were so busy cooking we forgot to take photos! This week Te Wheke made some Fruit Muffins and they were delicious! A great opportunity to continue using and developing our knife skills. Thank you to the Urwin family for raiding their apple tree for us.
Out in the garden we pricked out all the seedlings.
