MAY IN THE GARDEN
 
Some will notice that the plant list shortens as we head in to Winter. Planting seeds at the correct time offers the seeds the best opportunity to germinate. Eating seasonal fruit and vegetables is also very beneficial. That is the reason to plant according to the season.
 
Patchwork shares the May plant list, see it here.

CURRY QUEST
 
Curry Quest was established 2004 by a Durban-born couple after moving to Cape Town in order for their young daughter to acquire a liver transplant.
 
A year after the successful transplant, the now stay at home mom decided to get back to work. During their first year of relocation, during the initial homesick period, Vani and Kevin were unable to find Durban-style curries. 
 
This is when they decided to establish their own Durban Curry Restaurant, hence the name Curry Quest. Find out more here.
