Our Barley Bear got attacked by a dog, but he was patched up by the dog owner,  He lost a bit of other facial skin, which got patched up with felt wool.  His top and bottom are all handmade.  He goes everywhere my daughter goes, including school.  I can say that he is one of the most loved bear in the world!! . . . . .

Green Tomatoes, harvested just before the shortest day!  Pretty good run of harvest, almost 5 months long!  I roasted all of them, then added to olive oil, garlic and herbs and used as pasta sauce.  A bit bitter, tangy, and fresh :-) . . . , greentomatoes newzealand dunedinnz portabulous newzealandgram bestnewzealand nzlife nzlifestyle lifeofadventure messy ニュージーランド ダニーデン ライフライフスタイル뉴질랜드 新西兰 Neuseeland tourismNZ tomatoes トマトグリーントマトgarden harvest pasta
