Myrtle spurtle


A very special Mothers Market this weekend. We had two stalls. Not only did we bake our cupcakes but we also provided food for the kitchen. Phew! Exhausting, but I loved it. The best part? Using ingredients from my garden to include in the menu. The last of the pumpkins roasted. Relish made from those tomatoes. Parsley for salads.

We used all local, organic ingredients :: beetroot, greens, celeriac, potatoes, parsnips. And it's always a good sign when we sell out of everything. We now have cake regulars who come prepared with their own boxes and buy up big. "I'll have three of each please." Totally chuffed about that.

Growing your own produce. Making it into something delicious. Then selling it. And hearing the word delicious. Amazing feeling. Couldn't be happier. For all my hard work I treated myself to one of these. Not only a great name, but very useful and extremely good looking. Every kitchen should have one.

  8. Everyone needs a spurtle I think. Especially a Tasmanian made one. We should all go and buy one.

    Everything looks wonderful. Congratulations on selling out, must be such a fantastic feeling. Especially as you have been there from garden to table with most of the food.

  12. Michelle, please stop teasing us with these beautiful photos until you can figure out how to start posting them over the ocean. Looks like a tiring week-end

  13. Too much building going on here last weekend (between downpours), had to feed the troops scones instead of cupcakes as I din't make it out...what a shame it all looks very yummy.
