If You Can't Beat Them, Join Them
Well, you would think it would be easy to think of a name for a blog but it wasn't for me, there are obviously some very creative people out there who can think up some great names, I am not one of them.
I have been playing with the idea of a blog for a while and everyone seems to be doing it so I figured "why not?" I have a bit to say about some things, and it might be therapeutic to get it out there for all to see, I think :)
I discovered a small pumpkin in the garden yesterday attached to a thin strand of vine, goodness knows if it will survive. The other seeds have popped their heads through the ground and I need to plant more over the fence (can never have too many pumpkins, though my partner in crime and life would disagree as he gets cranky about all the vines running across the lawn).
I have rosellas ready to pick but this year will just throw them into salads chopped up, however in the latest Warm Earth magazine there was a recipe for rosella cordial that I might try out. I have dried out some seeds to give away and also pigeon peas, of which I have millions (seeds that is) and while getting the pigeon pea seeds it was good to know I wasn't going to be killed by falling coconuts. Last week we had the nuts cut out of the trees so we didn't kill the neighbours or the dog, unfortunately the dog no longer has coconuts to eat and luckily we no longer have rats living in the trees.
Well, time to go and water the garden, and pick some stuff to go with our meal tonight.
