The problems with passion fruit
Mango season is drawing to a close and although there are a few avocados starting to appear, now is the height of passion fruit season.
Passion fruit is called chinola here, easy to grow and makes great juice. And therein lies the problem.
Apparently, so I have been reliably informed, men can eat the chinola fruit with no problem, but they cannot drink the juice. It causes impotence.
However if you add evaporated milk to the chinola juice then it doesn’t cause impotence, somehow the evap milk (Carnation as they say) negates the effect of the juice. If you want to be even more certain that there will be no issues with the juice, then you add oats as well.
I would love to have fresh chinola juice, without Carnation and without oats, but methinks in a house full of men that is unlikely to happen.
The gym has a new machine. Bars that you do dips on. Luckily they didn’t need anything else from the house.
Hector fans can see it in use!
And it is now confirmed that the buckets I used for compost, which I was promised were just moulds, are not moulds at all – the concrete is firmly stuck inside, and they are now being used regularly.
And fed up with the attention Hector is getting, husband insisted on a photo of him too!
