Not quite ashymashy.
Mr Woody, please note I put friut above most lollies. I will make an exception for lollie Singa! (say Sainga.)
I love feijoa. I love it so much I am not sure how to spell it. I have a funny (I think) story on how I was born, which relates to feijoas.
Then, there is passionfruit. Yep, seeds and all. sooooooooo double triple tasty.

my favourite veges... I'm not sure if I actually put in order. However, I do like carrots and string beans. If they are still classified as fruit. (honestly! A cucumbers a fruit, an eggplant, a tomato - WHAT NEXT???)

I think I remember a post about Matariki a while ago, I think its the pic i rememba!
Fruit for me, is berry's (I looooove strawberrys) and Passionfruit!
I love good roast veges, crispy potatoes, Kumara, and my most fave : YAMS! People say they look like Huhu grubs, but they are delicious! I have no clue about Matariki, but will look up sum of ur webasites kitty milo!

My mums middle name is Te Ao Marama which means the world of light.
Te Ao is referring to the world.
My sisters middle name is Amokura which means treasure that you hold in your hands.
There are lots of cool names in Maori.
It is because Maori are warrior poets.
B.T.W. My mum was wondering what we are or did do for Maori language week.

I thought you said that pretty much everything we grow in summer we could grow in winter because it's in a green house....

Btw, I touch typed everything from 'pretty' to 'because'!!! It took ages though because I'm not used to it!
