Today is a good day

Yes today is a good day because for the first time ever, I have just seen my profile in the Actively watched blogs section of the Blog page.

As I type this my crack team of five cats are licking baked-on food off my hotpot dish. Yes I will be washing it after with soap, and then boiling water. I let them lick tough bowls clean because it saves me ten minutes of scrubbing with a brillo pad.

Today was also a good day because I was able to harvest 1lb of gooseberrys from my one gooseberry bush. Normally seen as green sour bastard berrys of the fruit world, these gooseberrys have gone purple, soft and sweet in the baking sun.
I plan to let them mature a bit more in the warm kitchen then have them with a bowl of clotted cream vanilla icecream.

I've noticed that some fruit plants always give better yields when planted close to a main road with all the traffic fumes. It's that lovely combination of lead, CO, CO2 and partially burnt hydrocarbons that deters pests and encourages the best blackberry, gooseberrys and several other fruits.

Don't ever give up searching for the fun in life.
