At the start of the lockdown I lost all of my work. Which left me spiraling and heavily depressed. . There was no relief from government and I lived on the generosity of family and friends to buy food items. . I am telling you this, because I need you to know that fresh food from the farm is not just for people who have money. . Fast forward to today. I have secured a new position work-wise 🙏 and I am able to buy my own food again. Even though still on a super tight budget. . Buying local and s

But look!! A heart! My bread made me a little heart! 😍 . Soooo much respect to sourdough and other artisan bakers. This is not that easy. . One thing I need to mention here is this: Even when your sourdough fails, it still taste AMAZING!! Like super amazing! . So, you cant really lose here. . I ha

Picked up these Irish Roses (Aeonium Arboreum) this morning. 🌱 Cape Town has been violently stormy the last few days. Miserable and wet. 🌱 Found these guys on the ground. All broken and lonely from the storms. Had to bring them home. 🌱 I hope they will grow. 🌱 Do you rescue plants? 😂 🌱 🌱 🌱 🌱 🌱 #aeoniumarboreum #aeonium #irishrose #succulents #succulentsofinstagram #succulove #rescueplants #succulentlove #succulovers
