Is there MUSHROOM in your basket..........








Hi my little mushrooms(sweet-peas).......

I was talking to our lovely neighbours, Vicki and Bill at the letterbox the other day when they told me they had a paddock filled with 
field- mushrooms.......
"If you want some just pop up and help yourself"
Do I what.......
Oh oh.....I was so excited.....I rushed inside grabbed a basket, put on my gumboots and collected some peppers and tomatoes to trade, kissed Warren goodbye, then ran down the road.
It was so much fun......I skipped all the way home grinning and swinging my basket like I was a five year old.
We cooked them up that night and they were so yummy.

Now the wee pinafore I am wearing was a find on the $2 racks at Toffs in Dunedin. It was down to my feet and had overall type buckles to attach the straps.
Out came the sewing-machine to shorten it and then replace the buckles with some cute fabric covered buttons with embroidery flowers. There you have it a perfect around the house/paddock, work pinafore all for $2 and a bit of time to "make it work".

Love V
