Currently on a trip in SE Asia, and using pork cracklings as a topping for any kind of food is the best thing I’ve seen so far.

Mudhi Mansa from Orissa! A warriors breakfast in Ashoka’s army, Mudhi/Moori (puffed rice) + a Mutton Curry would be eaten for sustenance by marching armies. Later favoured by the Mayurbhanj Kings as a perfect Shikar meal. Mayurbhanj is known to be a significant producer of Moori today, & this a common breakfast/meal. Not a #LostRecipe though I came across it while looking for Lost Recipes. Mind was blown. Moori was also preferred during the Bengal Famine since a little bit goes a long way.

First Post here,
So m from India & this is indian dinner
rices and curry full of spices

I have no idea what Twitter did to piss off all of India but I am so excited to see some of the exodus landing here, this is gonna be delicious. Welcome all!

I never understand people who travel thousands of miles from their country and end up eating their country's food. I mean, the whole idea of traveling is to have new experiences. And new foods are definitely the greatest new experiences.

I'm looking to add a few more moderators to this instance to keep on top of the new user account requests - anybody interested in helping out?

I love that with Blueberries you not only get food, but you also get great autumn colour too.

This cultivar is: Vaccinium corymbosum 'Hortblue Petite'

Working on a garden design for a friend has been so good for me. I've enjoyed the creativity, and of course, thinking about the #plants.

I really hope one day I'll be well enough to work again, as I'd like to do this as a job. Not a posh type designer, gosh no, that isn't me. I want to help people in cities see the potential in their spaces, no matter how small, so they can be able to enjoy it. And if I can help them to start growing some food too, that would be a bonus :)

Astrantia 'Hapsden Blood' is STILL flowering!

This one flowers for months and is also a great cut flower. I have it planted so it greets me whenever I look outside the kitchen window. One of the deepest pinks of any Astrantia.

Today I got my garlic in. :garlic: The photo is of me haved spaced out the cloves, with canes separating the varieties out. There are 7 varieties in this bed (9 of each has been sown) plus one more variety in another bed.

I space them out in a zig zag pattern, as this fits more cloves in. More info here if interested.

Don't worry if you haven't got yours in yet. I once planted mine Xmas day and still got a good crop! The main issue is to get it in before the ground gets hard frosts, so keep an eye on the forecast.

Mmmmmm, :garlic: :garlic: :garlic: :garlic: :garlic:
