A reminder that unless you plant seeds nothing can grow.
To the right are tomatoes for the Hafengarten community garden, behind the cat’s barley grass is an assortment of edible flowers, herbs that are waiting to grow and fenugreek sprouts.
Tim’s been making Blunzngröstl lately – refried bloodsausage with fried potatoes and freshly grated horseradish. And invariably we drink a Most (Austrian Sour Apple Cider) that’s mixed with soda water.
It might be worthwhile forgetting what I wrote about salads a minute ago – pigs’ blood fried up with onion and potatoes is the bomb.
I rarely drink beer and The Maths Captain invariably dry retches after the first sip – but despite this I received a beer brewing kit from him for Christmas 2014. We bottled our first brew – a standard Coopers Brewery Lager – in January and in April I mislabelled the bottles that we gave to a friend for their 40th.
In Australia homebrew is totally normal – but here in Austria people either thought we were idiots or akin to crazy gods.
