Brinjals for Africa!

From January until late March, we harvested brinjals, almost daily, and sometimes as many as a garbage sack full!

Many were given away, some were sold, and quite a few were eaten in our house! We had them stuffed, baked, stewed and sauced. The last recipe we tried was served as an appetiser:

Slice brinal into rings, about 1.5cm thick. Rub with a little olive oil and bake at 180C for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle each slice with crushed garlic, fresh chopped herbs and grated cheese. Return to oven and bake for another 5 - 10 minutes and enjoy! Really yummy!

Rosalind... our faithful helper

Ros comes to the garden every Tuesday afternoon to teach gardening to the young ones of the community. They love her patient, gentle manner and the special time they have together. For many children, it is the highlight of their week. Thank you, Ros!
