Surely garden related, I bring forth the rock balancing challenge (something we have started around here for fun) -

 

A while back I saw a video of a lady somewhere in Europe balancing huge gorgeous rocks above the surface of a lake which inspired me to try it and while not easy certainly possible to get some very unique set ups...who’s in?! 😉

It still took some balancing and my back decided it was a bad idea but I used old basalt building stones to make an inunnguag. Had to rebuild it after this photo was taken because rain caused the ground to settle and it fell over. Obligatory food note: the green pigface in the front that isn't flowering is supposedly edible but I haven't tried it.

Love it.  Beautiful.  It is what we would call around these parts, an Inuksuk - a traditional monument or landmark used by the Inuits of North America.  Curious if they have any history Down Under?

I am asking because I don’t know – –does it most resemble an inuksuk or an inunnguaq (as the poster states)? 
 

The Inuit also construct a stone figure called an inunnguaq, which means "in the likeness of a human. " This familiar stone figure with head, body, legs and arms is often mistakenly referred to as an inuksuk. Its purpose is more symbolic than functional. Because it looks like a little person, its image has become a popular cross-cultural symbol.”

From Here.

I see bins of them in Korean market - wonder the common uses in that cuisine. Yours look fresh& tender.

I see it in Asian supermarkets and I use it for an Asian stir-fry with small amounts of meat and a fermented sauce. It's been a while though since I had it and I think it's seasonal - I just forgot which season when available.

So many good things to do with these guys.

 

Grill them and serve them as a salad.

Roast and make a paste in a mortar and pestle and use as a pizza base.

Paste them add potato flour and make gnocchi.

pickle them.

 

That should give you some food for thought...!

I still can't find a decent long but skinny stake to help my curry tree stand up straight - so I finally broke down and just stuck a piece of 1/2" pvc pipe into the "ground".  Looks pretty good standing up though:

Winter here, so time to harvest the turmeric. I’ve dehydrated and ground half of this so far. I think the rest might go in the freezer, unless you have a better idea ??

Beautiful! I think your freeze plan is what I'd do. Do you use it mostly in cooking or in drinks? The stuff I can buy is much more elderly and not as plump even in Asian markets.

I’ve never grown it before, so haven’t had fresh turmeric to play with until now.
I’m going to try some drinks/teas tomorrow. 
Here’s the colour difference between the freshly dried and ground, vs store bought on the right.

I use fresh turmeric in some Nyonya curries as part of the rempah - usually about a 1-2" piece.
