actually, neither of these are *mine*, as such. In fact, neither of them are even at my house. They’re at my otherhouse, but I’m there enough of the time, anyway…
This is a brand new Bokashi bin, bought today! It was one of many killer scores at the Gardening Australia expo. I accidentally bargained for it, whoops!
Bex: so, these bins. Are they a special show price?
Guy: Yes! $10 off!
Bex: Looks at A, dubious
Guy: You drive a hard bargain. Have another $5 off!
Bex: Looks at him, incredulous
It’s SO EXCITING!! It sits on the kitchen bench, and it’s a compost bin! And it doesn’t smell! And you can put in everything, coffee grounds, meat, onion, citrus! Then you sprinkle on some magic Bokashi powder and press it down with the presser (it’s a potato masher! See it on the windowsill!) each evening. Then eventually, presto! No food scraps, some dirt, and a small amount of super concentrated liquid fertiliser. WE ALL NEED ONE!!! Huzzah!!
This one, it’s not really a kitchen item. but it makes consumables! This is A’s craft. She’s started homebrewing. This here is the third brew, a Pale Ale, put on this very evening. The previous two brews are in various stages of ageing gracefully and waiting to be consumed at high speed. Fun times party town.
