I think I'll throw her cousins into the mix also. LOL Thanks for the tip Robbie.
Steam it for 3 hours! Nice and moist!
I'll make pudding out of her!
Welcome Shirley, hope it works out.For such a pretty little lady Graci, you sure are blood thirsty!!.....( Of course ALL of you are pretty ladies!!)I thought you might knock Kumquat out chickie!!! Heh, heh.
Hey Kumquat! I'm sure they're just as special as you are! Thanks for the link.
I am glad Jenny got home ok, so not cannons, after all it is the Xmas season let's just enjoy it. The war will continue on New Year's day!
Thanks for that Robbie, they are grafted and are about two year old, I'll look forward to some fruit next year, hopefully.
OK didn't notice the Doves puzzle heading, thanks PK.
Good job now change the other one......
Hah, good one PKH, thanks.Hi bookish, actually PK and chickie have been helping out, we will get it eventually, hang in there.Yes we do have our laughs don't we PK, thanks for the help.
Great picture of Jenny. Had to laugh at some of the comments. They were good.
Robbie, it's comforting to know I'm not the only one having problems with this new Jigidi.
You are waxing "loquatious"......never heard of a loquat, but have written it down to use in scrabble against my brother! :)
Jenny just arrived home Graci so no cannons.
Not my best time Jacques, but peace to you mate.
why are you so aggressively in the most beautiful time of the year?
peace man peace!
Is the Belgium chocolate bothering you again Robbie? Maybe you should get you cannons ready! LOL!! and yes, I love meeting people from all over the world and that happens everyday here, I think Canada is the most multicultural country in the world.
That is a great experience Graci, it is so nice meeting people all over and usually all it takes is a smile or friendly wave. Thanks for that.
You're right Jacques, did you kidnap her?! She should be home by now, I hope I don't have to come after you again!!!.......You SILLY LITTLE MOUSE!!!
I love the story behind the picture Robbie, something like that happened to me when I went to Spain. We were in Ojen, a little town in La costa del sol, and we passed this house with a herb garden at the front, it was different and beautiful, then the lady of the house came out, after a nice conversation we left we a bag of oregano, parsley, sage etc..... it was a beautiful experience.
You've won the lottery with her, but she's not with you!
Thanks Graci, Jenny says "oink".Those are great images Kumquat, thanks.Wish we could BJ, this was on holiday in Greece, thanks.Shirley if they are from seed could be anywhere from 7 to 15 years! Grafted ones in right conditions could start in 3 years.
We have two young Loquat trees, How old do they have to be before they fruit? looking forward to making some chutney. Thanks Robbie and Jenny.
Plenty of fruit on the tree, so make something out of them.
Chickiemama, you ninny, have you never met my cousins??
Nice picture of Jenny pigging out! Seriously now, really nice photo!
Glad you know about them JB, never heard that before, going to look C Plums up. Thanks.
Good memory you have gem, thanks.
Hi snooker, I see what you mean, thanks. Not sure how I got two puzzles on, took my allotted space away from me!! I also wrote my first comment on the actual comment bar before as well, looks like it works both ways. I still prefer the comments on this old jigidi format, the new one is too big. However I will have to adjust, thanks for your help.
Yes they are Hanne, we would eat them on our way to and from school many years ago!
I've heard that they are very good tasting!! Thanks so very much Robbie!!
Robbie, put your title on the line below the word INFORMATION. If you want to leave a comment (description of the puzzle) before you post, put it in the description box.
Bermuda Gold...mmmmmm...Cup of Gold at the Elbow Beach Bar...a mouth-watering memory from 32 years ago! :)
Loquats are yummy and so is this puzzle! Thanks, Robbie!
Loquats are also called Chinese plums!
Yeah but why are there two puzzles the same now? Am I going into a rant and rage again today??!! Not yet I have to go.
That is one good thing about the new format, you can go back and change your title Robbie.
Hi chickie, we make a chutney and a jam from them both delicious. Also there is a liqueur called Bermuda Gold made from loquats. Hard to describe the flavour, they are nice and juicy sweet when ripe and a deep yellow/golden colour. I believe it may have been Plumpossum who posted some pictures of hers some time ago.
That is very interesting GS and it certainly leaves a warm feeling towards others.
Hi PD, thanks, I see I have to get used to the new format, I wrote a description where it said to, not sure what happened.
I've heard of them, but have no idea what they look or taste like--google, here I come! (Now if only you could google the taste, too...)! By the way, interesting title--is it courtesy of the New Jigidi, which uses your file name if you don't change it? :-)))
A lovely gesture, and one you and Jenny obviously appreciated! I once got to know an elderly man who was also a keen gardener, and he would leave a bag of his home grown vegetables on the back gate for me to collect as I walked past with the dogs! Something like that restores your faith in human nature!
Never heard of a loquat. Hope you made something yummy with them.
Jenny and I were walking one afternoon and noticed this loquat tree. The owner happened to come out and we complimented him on his garden and our surprise at seeing the loquats. He did not seem to speak much English but understood what we were saying. He invited us in, brought the ladder and said "take all, I no like!" So we did!! No no, only a few, but what a nice man and gesture.
