  1. This caused us 2 find out how much we actually spend. For fam of 6 it was $175. Then there’s the deb8 about whether 2 buy ‘fairtrade’ (expensive) versus ‘no name’ (cheap). I think we’ll just eat apples cos I can grow those. So look 4ward 2 a nice big meal of apple pie when u visit! Suzy Q

  2. $175 is very conservative for 6 of you! Wait till they hit the teens, well the big fella must be eating you out already hey!
    I love the fact that you have the apple tree I saw your photos. We are looking at extending the garden and putting in raised beds and sweet sawdust paths 🙂
