There are a goodly number of pawpaw on the trees this year. They are liking this long cool spell and plumping up well, so I am watching them carefully. It is very hard to tell when a pawpaw is ready. And they seem to ripen at different rates of course.
When they are ripe I pick them and scoop the flesh out, sieve out the seeds and freeze the flesh. Pawpaw makes amazing icecream! They taste like mango but in miniature.
The roosters are laying wait. When the fruit is over-ripe it falls and makes a wonderful breakfast for a big bird.
The cat picture. It seems there is always a cat picture.
Last night while I was preparing these images for you, Jess, my Airbnb guest txted me some of the photos she has taken this week. She was happy for me to share these with you.
But Jess has the touch.
Jessica is doing a summer internship on the local windmills as part of her studies literally climbing up through the tower and dong maintenance on the machines. She is studying to be an engineer in sustainable energy and has more job offers than you can shake a stick at. Every day after work she plays with TonTon.
He hears her car coming from far away and races to the front of the house where her door is and lays in weight. TonTon LOVES her.
With some of the profit from her stay I bought a little table top grill for Jess to use on the South Porch. She grills almost every night and after dinner she brings any left overs out to her pigs.
So, Molly loves her too.
I hope you have a lovely day.

Let’s see what it was this time last year: almost exactly the same. It is funny when I look back a year – I am always shocked that it was ONLY a year ago.
