The Israelites were promised a land flowing with milk and honey,the faithful would receive the fat of the land but I think God gave all the fat to me (lolz). So, I started intermittent fasting because not only is it a very good strategy against covid (and I believe that we pick up SP and virus that is still in circulation) but I also need to lose some weight. It is even possible that the weight gain is an inflammatory response to SP, it is certainly a response to stress as it increases cortisol. So I am blaming it on that, not what I put in my mouth (lolz).

So, I have been doing more gardening and went for a two hour walk yesterday and just got back from a walk now.  The walk in the nearby nature reserve was beautiful and I picked some gumbi-gumbi leaves which I am drying out for tea.  I also planted all my dandelions into one pot so that I can harvest the leaves for tea and I transplanted my burdock from a pot to the front garden. Burdock can be used for tea and cordials. I am even growing stinging nettles which are a super-food (lolz). Planted some chilies,lettuce and climbing beans and removed some of the dead tomato plants.  Got a box of Portobello mushrooms that I still need to jump start.

I also got two new chooks -young hi-line birds, a black and a white one with apricot coloring and I have to spend my time stopping them getting bullied
