    Lovely, lovely, lovely. Even if you're not as slim as it appears in the bottom pic, you are a lot slimmer than you were and look very well and happy. Glad you had a great time.

    Now I have a pumpkin harvest, 7 whole pumpkins from small 1kg to 3.5kg each, for a total of 14kg of pumpkin.

    Bring on the pumpkin soup, the sour cream pumpkin bake and the pumpkin quiche. :)

    Two meals today, but one was takeaways so not a primally successful day after all. Lots of driving and no real exercise either.

    Gathered 1.2kg of feijoas, better do something with those tonight.

    How did the yoghurt making go???? I too am fortunate to have access to fresh raw milk, but my brief foray into yoghurt wasn't overly successful. I'd like to do butter and cream though, and I'd love...

    Yes indeed you are. I was so angry when I realised that by trying so hard to do the right thing I had only been diluting the nutritional value of our food. Grrrrrrr.

    Nope, I wouldn't eat it. I feed it to the chickens though and they love it. It boosts their egg production noticeably so must be very nutritious.
