One degree of separation

.This morning the WMBM made some additions to his edible colour palette  - jostaberry, thornless loganberry (it will never mitigate the viciousness of the youngberry) and more raspberries. The sweet potato also are taking off in the vegie patch and last evening we dined on freshly dug potatoes, yellow squash and cherry tomato bake with fresh peas. Where's the meat? Well we tucked into a lamb sausage each - courtesy of our friends and farmers Siwa Fresh. The onion and carrot were grown locally - our entire meal was no more than one degree of separation between paddock and us.  The wattle seed pods are gorgeous, providing a reddish ochre carpet and are irresistible to the Rosella's and king parrots.
