While I didn’t volunteer with the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens (RTBG) on Thursday, other volunteers did. One kindly explained their experience associated with artichokes and sent me a couple of photographs. She told me that the Coordinator …
‘Adam harvested some artichokes and steamed them up in the urn (with a metal steamer basket inserted into the top of it – genius) for us to try. I think he said he gave them 5 or 6 minutes and then some lemon and olive oil from his wonder olives. So simple and delicious! Adam said he could do some more this week, so those that weren’t there last week would also get to try. And no green tea was missed last week. Perhaps because both you and R. weren’t there, or perhaps the leaves really weren’t dry enough but Adam said better to give them another week drying and so that will be happening this week now.’ These photos are great. Thanks K.
Clearly it is important never to miss a Thursday! You can be sure I will be taking the family heirloom silver teapot this Thursday to brew a pot of tea for all of us, using the tea leaf tips we picked a week and a half ago.
Wow! Looks amazing! I missed you all on 3rd – particularly you, weed girl – so am really looking forward to being there this Thursday 10th. A cup of tea and steamed artichoke hearts – what more could you want? Love it! Thank you xx
Yes I was so pleased when K sent me those photos – and to hear we might get a chance tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.
