Citrus circus

The citrus is turning… Ready for picking and enjoying in a refreshing drink! 

Ideas for lemons… Lemon curd, preserved lemons, lemonade, hot lemon and honey drink the list goes on…

Mandarins…they are so absolutely the nicest I’ve ever tried… So sweet and juicy and perfect. Recipes… Not sure you’d bother – they are just so divine as a snack on their own.

Limes – perfect for cutting into wedges and freezing – just drop a frozen wedge in your drink for a flavours ice cube!




Well the construction has finally started with Masters’ personnel coming across on Wednesday to begin the compost area. Mario and Anstan really had it under control while Kylie,  the new community outreach officer for the Preston Store, explored further possibilities for joint ventures with gardeners. The team will be back to complete the compost area and then again, after our pavilion has been erected, to put the planter boxes and furniture in. 
Thanks to Karen and Ken for offering to assist on the day; as it happened gardeners did not have to do too much on the construction. 

Stuart and Samantha,  from Masters’ management, came by to check progress and have lunch with us Very pleasant, and productive day.
