I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

Who would ever have thought that I would complain about having too much fruit after trying to grow fruit trees for years with no success. When we moved to Julatten we inherited numerous citrus trees. Lemons, Navel Oranges, Mandarines and Limes. This year the fruit has been prolific and so, so, sweet! So the obvious thing to do was to make Fruit Salad. I also have dozens of passionfruit and together with the purchase of a couple of apples, some blueberries, pineapple and banana the fruit salad is ready to be made.
I will freeze the passionfruit pulp.
Nothing is wasted in my house. All the fruit peelings go straight into the compost bin and when the compost is ready it goes around the fruit trees!
