What fun that we both love gardening. Thanks for joining me.
1) Decoy white butterflies
Decoy plastic white butterflies
Yes well, it's not the most exciting photo... but it was rather lifelike the way I cut out little butterflies from a yogurt container, drew black dots on their wings and strung them across the garden with bits of fishing line so they wafted in the breeze.
Sad to say my experiment was a failure. Many times I've read this tip — that white butterflies are territorial and won't come near if there's another lot nearby.
But you wouldn't believe how many white butterflies suddenly arrived... "There's a party" they madly fluttered.

Veg Stuffed Kumaras
I've been experimenting with stuffing kumaras (sweet potatoes), and this one is rather nice, if I say so myself. No dairy, no grains, no animals harmed in the process, and so on ..
Note: Try many variations, such as grated cheese or crumbled feta; 1 tsp curry powder; 2 Tbsps coconut cream or chopped tomatoes etc, mixed in.
Preparation: 20 minutes
