Re: I smiled because...

this rain is helping to wash away the yellow powder pollen. Now I won't have quite so much to clean outside...

Where does one get molasses?
Health food shops, pharmacies (I actually got my last one at Coop Vitality), on-line. I'm still looking for a supplier to make my regular one (I want the raw, black molasses, bio and of course best price ).

As to the price, I think next time I place my regular amazon-order, I will buy the molasses there too.

I hardly use sugar - and now when I do, only THE brown-sugar. When I did my research on this brown sugar hype, I learnt that black molasses is actually an extremly healthy thing. (But don't overdo it as it is also is something very sticky to your hips And to get the health benefits you don't need much really). I love the taste and often just the molasses is enough sweetening for me without mixing it with the sugar.

Re: I smiled because...

I now have my garden and not a balcony, my poly tunnel is built and the tomatoes are growing and this morning I saw that my plum tree has tiny tiny plums on it

Miss the scenery in CH but love my garden and life here too

Re: I smiled because...

I got these flowers that close up when it rains and happily open when the sun is out.Repetitively. While the ones around them just get bashed by the rain.
