We won!

Interrupting this media fast with an important announcement :)

In a moment during November 2014 I entered Urban Homestead South Africa in the SA Blog awards "Best Environmental Blog" category. I then forgot about it with the busyness of the year end and trying to shift my focus from online to in house.

Yesterday I received and email to say that this humble little blog had won the category! Oh my word...so excited!!!

So to celebrate here are some photos of food from the garden and the meals they went into...

Tomatoes, basil and Jalapeno

Into a tomato and mozzarella salad with basil ribbons

Cream cheese in mild chillies, soon followed by the REAL thing - chilli poppers!

Figs made into jam and ice-cream
And the lady in waiting - going to roasted and made into a variety of meals, along with her siblings.

And our granadilla vine is heavy with fruit promises...
So there is a little catch up - there are loads of other things growing on our little patch of Earth - but due to the honour this blog has been given, I thought it worth a little peek into the current harvests.

Thank you to all who voted for me and for the judges decision. Doing the happy dance here!
