This week's "Frugal Friday" Tip

Stop throwing out stale bread or wraps!
There are some great things you can do with stale bread! Blend them into breadcrumbs for your next schnitzel. Make bread and butter pudding, add some saltanas or frozen berries for an extra touch! Or cut the bread into cubes, toast it in the oven with a drizzle of olive oil, season with salt and you have some yummy crutons to add to soup or salad! 
If you have wraps that are no longer fresh, I recommend putting them on a tray, drizzle with olive oil, salt and whatever herbs you have in the garden. Cook in the oven on a medium heat for about 10 minutes, cut up and you have some easy crisps for dip or cheese!

-What's on This Weekend-

Watch the Penguin Parade - every evening!

The team at Phillip Island Nature Parks have brought the Penguin Parade to your lounge room! Watch the smallest penguins in the world, come out of the water and find their way to their homes each night. There can be thousands of penguins spotted every night! Click here for more information. 

Grow your very own EDIBLE mushrooms at home!

Watching mushrooms emerge and bloom is quite a thrill, only made more exciting when you harvest and eat your home grown gourmet mushrooms. Join our workshop and learn to grow mushrooms at home, on a pizza box! Visit our website (click here) for more information and to put your name down. 

Blossoms are bursting, birds are singing and you can smell and hear spring in the air wherever you go. There's loads to be done in the garden from improving your soil with organic matter or compost, to dealing with galls on your citrus from the gall wasps and of course now is the time to mulch your garden. Try taking to those galls with a peeler, expose the eggs and stop the cycle. Also, September-October is the time to be planting my all time favorite, the sun flower! Pop them straight in the ground where you want to see their big happy faces. Join our Bedford Park Community Garden Facebook page and show off those beautiful blossoms when they open.
