This week I almost got by spending just $3. But then I splurged and spent $6 on organic shoyu soy sauce. So grand total $9.
Growing up I had always wondered about whether fruit and berries I saw beside the road or in parks were edible. “Don’t eat them,” my mother warned. “You don’t know what they might have been sprayed with.”
“You’re really into your foraging at the moment, aren’t you,” a friend said to me recently. And I guess I am. In part it was because I was busy in Spring with writing, work and life in general – too busy to get around to cleaning up my vegie patch and putting tomatoes and other summer crops in. But I like home grown. So I thought I would treat the great bush capital of Canberra as my giant vegie patch.
