Lomandra / Mat rush

Had visit from friends, from our old life that is. We showed them around the property and garden.

We not only try to get a vegetable garden going but also we are interrested in native foods. We want to cultivate some of those native edibles.

So we were pointing out whatever you can eat both from nature and from the plant beds. Both mother and daughter ate happily everything I stuck in their mouths. (The dad took pictures.) Then we came to Lomandra or Mat Rush which we have not yet tried out but mom, without hesitation, trustfully pulled out a Lomandra leaf and started chewing. “How does it taste?” She began laughing. She was actually the first to taste it! Jen can be very convincing sometimes.
