Terms of trade

Good ol' fashioned bartering - home grown macadamia nuts

My friend Vanessa came around with her kids the other day for a playdate. It was fun, and as a bonus, I got to show off my garden!

Poor V was probably bored stiff by my excited ravings, but in passing conversation she mentioned her macadamia tree, and the fact that she can’t be bothered cracking the nuts. Was she serious?! Can’t be bothered? Macadamias! So we teed up a trade. My excess tomatoes for her bag of unloved macadamias.

Anyone else agree that the terms of trade were somewhat in my favour?

Problem is, my family are a little too keen on macadamias – they’re all gone already. Shouldn’t be surprised considering they are more than 70% fat 🙂
