A vegetarian who loves carbs, hates lettuce, and knows her way around the kitchen.

Pulled this nice looking romaine/butterhead lettuce cross for this evenings salad. It’s an overwinter variety called “winter density”. I planted a bunch in my coldframe greenhouse last October. They’ve survived quite a few frosty days & nights, but because they’re so old now they’re becoming a little too bitter for my tastebuds. Hopefully my new baby lettuces grow quickly!

Knowing he was about to be slaughtered, a bull in Hong Kong did what many people fail to realise or are skeptic about when it comes to animals - he showed emotion. As reported by “Weekly World News”, a group of workers walked a bull to a packaging factory. When they were close to the front door of the slaughter house, the sorrowful bull suddenly stopped moving and knelt down on his two front legs. The bull was in tears.  Mr. Shiu, a butcher recalled, “When I saw this kind of so-called “stupid” animal sobbing and with his eyes in fear and sorrow, I started trembling. I called the rest over to see. They were just as surprised. We kept pushing the bull forward, but he just didn’t want to move and sat there crying.” Billy Fong, owner of the packaging factory said, “People thought animals didn’t cry like human beings. However that bull really sobbed like a baby.” At the time, 10 men were present and all were touched. Even those responsible for the slaughter were in tears. Others working at the same slaughter house also came to see the crying bull. They were all shock by this scene. Three of them said they would never forget this crying bull when they slaughter other animals. With both man and animal crying, everyone knew that nobody could kill the bull. The problem was, what should they do with him? In the end, they raised funds to buy this crying bull and sent him to a temple, where the kind monks would take care of him for life. After the workers had made a decision, a miracle happened. A worker said, “When we promised this bull that we will not kill him, he started moving and followed us.” Mr. Shiu said “Believe it or not? This is real although it sounds unbelievable.” No doubt, this bull changed these butchers’ lives. Hopefully this story has, in turn, changed yours.

oh my heart.

Who says winter means no fruit? Apples are my favorite snacks, if you eat cheese try spreadable brie or goat cheese, or dipping in carmel or chocolate is always a good option!
