Grow your own stir-fry!

Our raised veggie beds are starting to really produce the goods. Last week we picked the following vegetables for a wholesome stir fry - bok choi, capsicum/peppers, white onions, carrots and silver beet.

What makes them notable is that we've fertilised them with alpaca poo!

I've been particularly pleased with the carrots which we grew from seed and seem to have cropped really well inhibited only by my reluctance to properly thin them out. Eli loves nothing more than crunching on a carrot after school. Last week he said carrots were his favourite food (after chocolate) so that's not too bad a thing..
