Braefield farms not only sell really good Lamb Burgers they also sell really fresh chilled meat, even whole lambs for the freezer if you want it. It is one of the only places in Launceston where one can buy very fresh liver. A lot of people get squimish about eating anything other than prime cuts of meat. Really fresh liver chopped into thin strips rolled in wheat germ and stone ground whole wheat flower then sauted is a dish to behold. While I was making my selection of liver from the mobile chiller a lady remarked we only feed that to our cat. I answered your cat may be better fed than you!
There is a lot of social pressure because environmental concerns to eat less meat and this is especially true when we have the duopoly of Coles and Wollies almost controling the food supply. Why would we buy meat that in many cases is slaughtered and packed on the mainland and then presented for sale in Tasmania when there are good honest local farmers going broke because of the despicable duopoly. We always try to buy local to the extent that we are prepared to do without if we can’t buy what we want. We feel it is far better to buy quality lesser cuts of meat than to buy just anything we can get from Coles and Woolies. Its better for us and better for Tasmanian farmers and self-sufficiency in general which is essential if Tasmania is going to progress.
Its ANZAC day in Australia, a day when we remember those who have died in wars. So this group of lilies seems like a very appropriate post. On a personal level I saw my father suffer every day with poor health as a result of WW2.
It was only after his death that I learned he had been decorated but refused to accept his honors because he did not believe in the glorification of war.
This group of wild lily was found on the Trevallyn side of the gorge.
These look like a minture but far more intensley coloured Belladonna lily. I’m curious to know what will eat them?
Roof tops in South Launceston Lots of clouds but no rain. This certainly seems like a regular pattern and one for no small concern. There was quite a good article outlining the dilema that faces Tasmania in relation to water and energy in the Mercury last week.
Having only lived in Tasmania for little over a year I wonder if I am qualified to comment further but the problems facing us at the present time are so fundamenal that anyone and everyone concerned needs to make their voice heard because the state government seems bereft of long term solutions. The fact is we are an island and as such we have to be as self sufficient in all our basic needs as it is possible to be and right now we are not, we are in what only can be describe as a mess and our government can only be described as moribund.
