The story of my life of late has been to and fro. Travelling between home and our home away from home in Sydney. I am home at last feeling like myself which is a very good thing . It does seem like a lot about me is defined by where I live and what I do or perhaps it is just that where and how I live and what I do is a true reflection of myself. That was all a little too much so I will move on to what I have been doing outside now that I have had a few days at home to catch my breath and to catch up.
The limes have been ready to pick for a couple of weeks but had to hang on until I could be here for them. There are ever so many and I'm sure in the depths of the freezer I still have a bag or two of last years lime juice. I might try selling some of them and I will be making up some cordial, baking and making some pickles (if I can find a good recipe). Unfortunately the abundance of limes has coincided with a lack of eggs due to moulting so the baking is taking a back seat right now.
The last of the raspberries are super sweet albeit a little sparse on the bush. This variety the Athertonraspberry has small fruit and they do seem to have more seeds than regular raspberries but they are good to eat nonetheless. Never enough raspberries for jam. Actually very few raspberries even make indoors here.
