Luke’s photos of rough diamond ‘weeds’ and more

Native stingless bee hive on top of chook house - spring clean time

The Friday gardeners making a raised bed garden in Myrtle

The watermelon Carpaccio with 'weed's - Chippo road garden flowers

Wood sorrel (oxalis) - a road 'weed' that graces famous restaurant dishes

Salvia flower (pineapple sage) - attracts small birds, boosts soil

More chickweed - it's everywhere here

One of our Friday gardeners, Luke, is a chef at one of Australia’s most famous restaurants. ¬†Luke and his fellow chefs have shown us that things we thought to be weeds are tasty, wonderful gifts which we can harvest, treasure and savour in salads and other amazing dishes.

And Luke’s a pretty fine photographer so enjoy his photos of our road gardens and some dishes that ¬†arejust the weeds of Chippendale . . . !

Terrific, thanks, Luke,
