eat your weeds !



Doing my bit ! These were being sold at Taylor Square markets yesterday by the people at Champion's Mountain Organics - I bought it instead of rocket - very tasty, it's a little bit like baby spinach without the offensive starchiness and with an earthier, more pleasant flavour. Yum.

Shameless plug! Champion's Organics is also at Eveleigh Markets, and Michael (the farmer) always tries to grow and sell unusual and uncommon things, and if he doesn't have it and you promise you'll buy it, he's willing to give anything a go! Nettles, chickweed, purslane, many more... drop by and say hi!
