IMK OctoberI would like to start off with an apology I was so busy last month that I didn’t get to everyone’s blogs like I usually do, but this month I will have a little bit of extra time to spend wondering through your beautiful blogs.

Thanks to Celia@ Fig Jam and Lime CordialΒ for hosting this wonderful monthly event! Don’t forget to go and check out all the other fantastic IMK posts this month!

In my kitchen are a lot of beautiful heirloom tomatoes, they taste and smell wonderful, I have so many I have slow roasted a few and I have even picked some green ones so that I can use them for Sweet Mustard Pickles. The cherry tomatoes tend to get popped in my mouth ever time I walk paste them! πŸ™‚

In my kitchen is a freshly baked loaf of bread, my very first one… I am using it to make Bunny Chow (a south african curry served in bread) recipe coming soon!

Because I am now making bread, thanks to the inspiration of the blogging community, In My Kitchen is a 6 loaf tray, so I can make some little loaves and little fruit breads!

In my kitchen is an empty egg carton πŸ™ it is empty because the chickens that I got last IMK post have not laid 1 egg yet! They were suppose to be point of lay, but after 4 weeks, still nothing!

IMK October

I told “Fried” “Scrambled” and “Poached” (their names) that if I don’t have an egg by next week, they will goΒ into the pot! However, they are getting very big and there combsΒ are starting to get very red….so I think that is Β a good sign… Every morning I walk out my door and they come running to say hello! They are a bit cute πŸ™‚

** I must add an amendment to this post, Β as on the day of posting, 2 hours later “Fried” laid her first egg… she must have felt the vibes! LOL so now there is 1 egg in the carton and hopeful one everyday for a while!

Just outside my kitchen are my blueberry bushes… I planted 3 different varieties to see how they would go in the Queensland climate and one variety is doing particularly well, So I am going to plant a few more of those this year. I have eaten about 4 blueberries so far, but you can see that there are many more coming and this is only their first year!

IMK October

Right next to my blueberries is my dwarfΒ Mulberry tree laden with Mulberries….I have had a few and they are so delicious, especially warm straight off the tree. It will never get to climbing stage, but at least I will be able to make a mulberry pie!

Thanks for taking a look at what is in my kitchen this month, I hope you have enjoyed the little poke around!

Enjoy Irresponsibly!
