Many, many and even more years ago I was told that if you plant parsley you will become pregnant!

Eeeeekkk..... I've planned two while packets of parsley seeds  :o

Just don't buy parsley seedlings and plant them or then you will have twins ;)
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

We've started growing fresh basil, perfect for pesto and so much cheaper and easier than buying it in bunches!!

I love having basil growing. It seems to run up to seed quickly, but I let it go and then the seeds come up for the next year.

When gardening today I found a Tarragon plant alive that I planted up in a pot last year. Usually itís too cold for the herb but unbelievably it survived outside through our ghastly winter.

Do you have a lot of macadamia trees Robyn?

DH trimmed our basil this morning and some of the olive tree as the bin goes tomorrow.

I bought a special madacamia nut cracker on a trip to FNQ years ago along with a bag of nuts.  Havenít used it since as down here I only buy the nut already shelled. Hereís a picture of it, theyíre a very hard nut to crack but this does the job beautifully. Itís name is B.O.N.K. - Bartís original nut kracker LOL.

Love it Judy, especially the name. Years ago you couldnít buy nuts already shelled. We used to use a hammer, but often all we got was nut fragments mixed with shell!
