I bought carrots this month. A 5kg bag for $1.99. I like carrots with my salads but as I cannot grow them and I was over at Spud Shed getting stuff for the daughter and I saw these...They are quite nice too, small and sweet.
No other vegetables were bought during August.
I did buy some bananas while I was there but no other fruit.
We are still getting Oranges so they were our fruit of choice this month. Those and the Passionfruit and we had a few Indian Guava ready to eat as well.
We are getting plenty of eggs and once again the son has brought out a few feeds of meat. He is a butcher at the local supermarket and sometimes brings out stuff that is too near to its use by date to sell.
This month we scored some lamb chops, a pork roast, sausages and 2 lots of mince.
He used to take it home and feed it to his dogs but a quick clip under his ear soon stopped that!
We do buy some meat, I usually get some liver and twin packs of chicken when we don't have any roosters. Sausages if they are on special. I would like to not have to buy any meat and some months I don't but I need the Liver for Iron and we like chicken...
I'm happy with the tiny amount of food that we need to buy but will keep trying to grow all of what we eat.
