Hi Isa I was wondering how you got on with the sick hen. Sorry about all the doom and gloom advice on the poultry page. I hope you had a better outcome. - regards - Kristen

Hi Isa. Yes there are quite a few others interested in starting an Ooooby stall at their local markets. You can see them at the Ooooby Stall Holders group. We still only have one formal Ooooby Stall at the Grey Lynn farmers market, however I understand that people are already running unofficial Ooooby style stalls. There may be someone in the group that would be interested in getting something going in Hamilton. Otherwise, feel free to start the ball rolling.

That's great - sorry I missed you today. My garden is still 'under construction' but the feijoa trees were there when we moved in, so we get loads. I might give your recipe a try, next time I make a cheesecake. It sounds good - and a great way to use up those skins! Keri :-)

You can have the lot if you like - nobody else seems to want any. And we will have plenty more in a few days anyway. :-)

Hi Isa, we are in Nawton. I have two buckets of feijoas and more falling daily! Our address is 36 Rosehill Place - I am going to leave the buckets of feijoas down the side of the house, so if you want some just call around with a bag or bucket and if we are out, help yourself! Cheers, Keri
