Hi. Have just started my own cheesemaking. One success with ricotta, and busting at the seams to try more.
Today is mozarella day. Have to buy milk as I live in a country town on a normal house block. No fresh milk available.
Have become obsessive about growing my own vegetables. Even some of my roses are going to make room for more vegies.
We have two black labradors that make friends with visiting rabbits, that try desperately to eat whatever I plant. Have started giving my vegy seedlings armour at night to try and give them a chance to grow. (empty pots turned upside down) lol.
We started a few months ago making our own beer, and have gone a bit crazy since. Partner's dad gave us a wood fired pizza oven at Christmas which started the obsession with food. Interesting reading about the smoked camembert cheese on the forum.
Lots of things to try, looking forward to participating on the forum.

Hi Gemma,

Welcome, the obsession with food and growing our own certainly takes over many of our lives... but you can't buy it as fresh as getting it out of your own garden.

Look forward to hearing all your news.

Hi Gemma,
Another one joins the fold! Cheesemaking is gloriously easy and challenging! You win some and you lose some. However, its so satisfying that you keep doing it. I enjoy making ricotta and the thirty minute mozz, and Edam (hint hint Vicki!!!).

Now, any room on that town block in the country to keep a cow? !!!

The labs sound adorable, just the type to show the rabbits where the really good pickings are.

I hope to hear a lot more from you on this forum, and WELCOME from all of us here!

Welcome Gemma!

And if you are going to get into cheese I think you are better off having a goat in your backyard! :lol:

I'd live a pizza oven - its on our list of things to buy/make over the next couple of years!
