    Too many eggs!!!!!…………..17 chook eggs and 4 duck eggs out of 20 hens and 5 ducks and 3 of the hens are clucky so not laying. Have been trawling the net for recipes using lots of eggs.

    The veggie garden is really struggling as the rain has been consistant all year but still getting beans,shallots,cherry toms,silverbeet. This year there are no lychees or mangoes as the flowers all rotted off. On the bright side………….the cows are vanishing in grass.

    Well over half a kilo of logan berries! Freezing most of them…. got to decide whether to keep them frozen for use through the year, or make jam to give away for christmas.

    * We don’t have too many eggs (and with DD home at this time we have limited use of such anyway cos of her reaction to them) BUT we have passionfruits galore:ohmy: :ohmy: Have been picking 2 buckets every 3 days but this has now increased to 4 buckets every 3 days!!!:pinch: :pinch: Have been giving them away and the freezer is well stocked too! Fills the gap left by mangoes and the small crop of mulberries.

    * We ate all the grumichama’s over 2 days standing at the tree……YUMMY:P Must plant more of them!

    * Been picking golden zucchinni (I left a small plant when I tp dressed the veg garden for the fallow time and it has powered on)

    * Also grapes

    * a huge bunch of sugar bananas with bananas about 3 inches wide and as long as cavendish ones!! all that cow poo from RTB’s place;)

    * Custard apple have finshed (thank fully cos became quite unfond of them after sooo long)

    * have had a lull in pawpaws too but picked 1 yesterday with 3 others colouring too

    * 7 yr beans grow quite well but get bugs/grubs or such but goat eats them even like that!

    * Star apples have a small crop and we get some most days (most split tho and we feed them to goat so not actually ‘wasted’):whistle:

    Know what you mean about the passionfruits Narelle, when they start to produce they really lay it on, have frozen a lot of my pulp to use on pavlovas from all the eggs ( DH’s favourite sweets) and have lemons to make lemon butter with the yolks. Also good to hear you have a goat again:)

    Still picking purple beans and they have been a real winner in this super wet “dry” season so now looking for some dry days to collect seed from them, the granadilla vine has some huge fruit on and still flowering……must go down again today and hand pollinate a few more.

    Other than a few cherry toms, shallots and snake beans there isn’t much in the veggie patch now as I have been slowly shutting down production for the wet season…………..but the freezer is well stocked with excess produce from through the year.
