|Getting the plastic out of our marine environment.|
Yesterday we were given a box of these.
We have planted two trees which are still immature, but I can't wait until they have so many fruit that we are giving them away by the carton-load too.
I've only ever had the tinned ones, so I decided to stew some up to see how they are before I bottle some.

They have a delicate flavour and go very nicely with custard.
We have a relatively recent problem here in Northland with guava moth, which hatches grubs inside fruit, and can ruin a whole crop. I found a few, which I carefully cut out, and have put all the trimmings in the freezer before I compost them to kill anything that might be lurking in there. So far we don't have it in our fruit trees.
I debated with myself about posting this one, but then I thought, no, too bad, tell it like it is. I have just been reading The Moneyless Manifesto, by Mark Boyle, author of The Moneyless Man, which I so enjoyed. But more about the book on another post when I have finished it, but just wanted to say that I'm sure it influenced this upcycle.
I have noticed that my warm socks all seem to have walked off by themselves. Pottering about at home I usually just have sock-clad feet, so I made these by chopping the sleeves off an old soft wool jumper that has seen better days.
I would also like to say that I can well afford new socks, but just choose not to.

Well if that doesn't get you rushing out to chop up your old jumpers, I don't know what will, hehe. Thanks for stopping by.
