Here I am popping out of my technological bubble and writing my first blog, and this is difficult, I haven't written a word in years. So where to start? Maybe I should tell you that this is the sort of thing I was supposed to start six months ago when I fist came to Ballarat. One of the things that got me excited about leaving the city was learning where the food that we all take for granted came from. But then I slowly forgot about that, until, riding through the park at the start of this week, i came across a very small patch of saffron milk caps.
So what was it that got me so excited about that first patch of mushrooms? It was that this beautiful produce came straight from the ground I live on. Like the wild blackberries, found in a local back-street, above.
