The bounty of the plum tree

We've scored a whole lot of plums lately, and here's what I've made so far. Barbeque Sauce (from a Quirky Jo's recipe, full of wholesome ingredients), and Plum Chutney, from a traditional recipe, full of plums! I had fun prettying the labels too. So, I'm not sure if I should be sharing this with my cooking friends, my crafty friends, or my people who might come over to eat!

Annual tomato brag

Every year I do this. I grow tomatoes, I show off. Since it's an annual posting, why don't I just make up a form? Then each year, I can post the appropriate data, and we can all get on with it. So, please read the post, and fill in the appropriate data from the table below. In future posts, I'll only need to post the data.

Hey, guys, I grew some [vegetable]. Don't they look [quality]? One of them is even [better quality]. I had some trouble with [pest type], but I just [remedy type]. I can't wait to make some [dish using vegetable].

DATA 2015

Happy new year from Perth

We took Tegan to see the New Years Day fireworks at Shelly Beach. Wow! A little kid was commentating for us all - "Wow, alien spaceship!"
