I had raced into the supermarket to pick up a few things, and when I got out I realised that I had left some garlic in the trolley and had not paid for it. I thought for about, oh, 2.5 seconds, whether to go back in and pay for it. But then thought of the amount of times I'd either left something there, or even worse, paid for something and it had been off/rotten/mouldy. So I left with my

My first thought: I'm glad I didn't pay for it!
Second thought: What should I expect when the only choice of garlic I have to buy comes from either China or Argentina?

We are done with buying eggs, and having finally gotten around to planting our vege garden a couple of weekends ago, we will hopefully be done with buying some vege's. Our fruit tree's are a few years off fruiting, that's if they do not get water logged. But the plum tree will be seeing us right come Christmas time.
It feels so good to know that we are and will be able to eat fresh and healthy from right outside our back door, literally. And it feels even better to know that we are showing our children how to do this.
But while our little vege patch is growing, we will delve into the abundance of fresh and locally produced fruit and vegetables, that has now become my weekly delivery. Bless small businesses that want to make a difference!
Have you been given a dose of karma lately?
