Tofu Tuesday: Green as they come

I’m glad we got to go the beach last week because it’s been raining ever since. The tomato plants are loving it though and I think the strawberries are pretty happy as the plants are about a metre off the ground so there’s no chance of flooding. I no longer have the willpower to test if my skin problems are being caused by things like strawberries and tomatoes. I gave them all up for a couple of weeks. Mixed results. So now I sneak ripe cherry tomatoes and strawberries one at a time as they ripen. Lucky, not many have ripened yet.

Tofu the bunny enjoys playing in the long wet grass even though it gives him a messy undercarriage. Here is Tofu relishing a moment of sunshine in an otherwise grey afternoon.

      It’s true. Although this morning I saw him run into something. I swear he looked embarrassed afterwards.

      • Flatpac did that with a bowl this morning. She was throwing a tantrum and picked up her bowl intending to launch it across her bedroom, when it flipped over her head and got her on the butt!

          Cute!

          That reminds me, I used to fold origami boxes for our old rabbit Sharmi. She loved flipping them and launching them into the air. On several occasions, they landed perfectly on her head like a hat. We like to think that she did it on purpose.

      Is there any reason why you don’t have a bunny Eva? I’ve only ever had bunnies as pets. Can’t imagine life bunny-less. Coming home to bunny cuddles is the best.

  1. Just a little question… what skin problems have you been having? I only ask because Ada’s developed excema for the first time in her life this past month and I hate to admit it but I think tomatoes and strawberry’s are the main triggers for her 😦 It’s so hard stopping her from eating them though. I’ve got my fingers crossed it’s not all the mangoes we’ve been eating, that would just be plain unfair. xx

      Hi Emma, I’ve had eczema all my life but this time is the worst I’ve had as an adult. I always get it the same time of year and I used to point it down to stress. I gorged on strawberries at the start of the season though with pretty low stress.

      Depending on how bad the eczema is for Ada, maybe just let her eat them for the rest of the season and use cream remedies to treat the symptoms? Strawberry season is over soon enough and she may be more miserable missing out than being itchy. Or maybe next year, see how her skin is at the start of the season, wait a few weeks, then eat strawberries, check the results and see if it is indeed the culprit.

      Mangos shouldn’t be a problem as I’ve read that they are a remedy for eczema. If it were also a cause for it, that would be very cruel.
