Boring I know, but I also managed to harvest yet more swiss chard over the Easter Weekend. Wow, I now have so much parceled up in the freezer - we certainly won't be running out this winter. Spinach soup, spanokopita (hopefully cooked in the Dover stove) spinach omelettes, creamed spinach - yummy, another firm favourite vegetable that even RMan will eat.

and delight me :)

carefully stored in different protective
compartments within the fruit
A single pomegranate with a 10cm (4") diameter (weighing approx. 280 gms) has a high anti-oxidant content and is also high in Vitamin C and Vitamin K - the latter being essential for the proper absorption of calcium - obtained either from your diet or when taken as a supplement.

between us :)
RMan and I are very encouraged to finally be reaping some "fruits of our labour". I have so many ideas of what I want to do, especially with the lemons and pomegranates - I can hardly wait for them to produce more fruit...
By the way, I am unable to post in the new Blogger GUI - I finally thought of, and have changed back to the old Blogger GUI to post this. I have reported it, but, if the Old Blogger should fail, then I fear you are going to have silence from me until the problem is resolved.
