Friday evening Steve and I walked to the school (15 Melbourne Street) harvest festival.  Now this is how it should be done.  Usual Christmas things, lucky dips but also local produce, wines, fish and chips, mussels and oyster plates.  I had a glass of bubbly and oysters prepared 6 ways: won ton, sushi style, natural, mango salsa, salmon and sour cream, soy and ginger.  Fabulous.  The natural was like leaping into a big wave.
Back at 13 Melbourne Street we are in mushroom production.  Such lovely plump little numbers.  Enough for a good feed each day - in fact I must get some now while Steve is doing a sausage sizzle for lunch.  So, quickly, on our walk to fetch the paper yesterday, Sis and I grazed on delicious cherry plums - more cherry than plum, and samphire.  Well actually I feasted, Sis wasn't so keen.  On our second walk to the shop I discovered a fig tree with fruit...

  1. Sounds very delicious! All except the oysters, I'm afraid!
