    harvesting garlic

Today I had a wonderful opportunity to team up with My Father’s Table in a paddock to plate event.  As part of Rita’s Middle Eastern Mezza Extravaganza Workshop I had a group of wonderful people come to the farm where Dean and I were able to share our experience of growing garlic and farming.  Guests where then given the opportunity to wonder through the garlic field and pick garlic ready to cook in Rita’s Mezza Extravaganza Workshop.  It was such a wonderful day as people from Newcastle, Singleton and even Victoria all came together and cooked, laughed and learnt about farming and Rita’s wonderful Lebanese heritage.  Finally we all sat down and enjoyed the fruits of our labour whilst surrounded by the beautiful Wollombi Valley countryside.  Certainly a day to remember and I can’t wait to do it all again in October.
