This morning by 11 o'clock I has cut out the above 2 coaster parts from the scraps of the heat proof batting to make ( by hand) over the next few evenings. I had done the house work and cooked a batch of pasta sauce from some of the many many tomatoes needing using. They are going off rapidly now.
It has tomatoes, onions, garlic, ginger, black olives, lots of ground black pepper, half a teaspoon of salt and 2 teaspoons of sugar. Tastes pretty good.
I am now off out to plant these 3 packs of bulbs that jumped into by trolley last week when I was at the Garden Centre. The 2 mixed packs had a dollar off but the front pack of frillies was quite expensive.
No we did not get bad storm damage here. Some of the male kiwifruit vines have a lot of growth blown out but the kiwifruit crop seems okay. Not so our rellies down in Patea and Waverley area.. Yes, you did see some of the young rellies on the TV News with their milking herds and the transportable generator. 50 homes in the area where we used to live have lost their roofs. We are really surprised you saw that in Canada Dawn and Neil,.
