Feast In the Suburbs
October 5, 2009 § 7 Comments
I have always had this romantic notion of popping out the back door for a walk in the woods to pick berries and it snowing at Christmas. Too many imported books and television shows as a kid I guess. The reality is I live in an industrial inner city suburb of Newcastle; no woods here. However with the sub-tropical climate food readily grows in our gardens and spills over our fences, and from October to early December in the lane ways, water easements and public land you can find a feast of mulberries, and I guess we have the beach at Christmas.
Where else do you go to the panel beaters to get rosemary for the roast lamb?
