I also planted out the tea section of the herb garden. Mint, Trio of Mint, Peppermint and Chamomile. I also have 1 sad little Camelia Sineisis (that's where your tea leaves come from) still waiting to go in but they aren't back in the stores till around mothers day so will get some more then. I love home grown tea.
This week I also came across this blog post for home made yogurt with the easiyo yogurt maker, so have pulled it out of the cupboard (or rather took it back from the mum lol) and have been having a go. We go through stacks of yogurt and it isn't cheap so this is great. I have been going with the following:
EASI YO YOGHURT Vanilla
500ml powdered milk (made up), mix in 2-3 tbs yoghurt for a starter, 1/2 cup powdered milk powder, 1-2 tsp vanilla essence, 1-2 tablespoons sugar dissolved in the smallest amount of water. Shake to mix, top up to the top with made up powdered milk.
This is costing me about $1 a litre as opposed to the $4-5 ltrs in the store. I made up some apricot by just pureeing some tinned apricot, but Ian and I are the only ones who like apricot yoghurt. Cant wait till the summer fruits all come in so I can play with them in the yoghurt too
Well I thought it was going to rain but it changed its mind so I better go water all my new plants.
