Friends and Markets

Is it really a years since i have done one of the local markets?
I have had the luxurious pleasure of visiting them since then and having time to engage with friends, fellow stall holders and customers from years gone by and taking in the ambiance that is a local market.
Today again i tasted the delights at Mullumbimby Farmers Market meeting with neigbor's and talking about our community.
A pleasure i am not sure i want to give up!

Cumquat Marmalade

This weekend its all about beating the Bats to the Cumqaut's.
We have had some 10 kilos already and made divine Marmalade, supplied it to cafes who have made the yummiest muffins with it, but as the last of them glow on their laden branches we need to pick them before the bats sit there munching all night and take the remainder.
