    Not exactly Clementi, But I love it.

    By the way, my cinnamon tree, which has one foot in the grave, so to speak, is showing some signs of vigor.

      Thanks. Glad there are signs of life around the tree! I had a curry tree (in a pot – a real curry tree not a pretend one) but there was no room for it in the truck last time I moved. Everything spicy in my life these days comes out of a jar.

        What is a real ‘mustard tree,’ botanically speaking, in other words, what would Carl Linnaeus have called it?

        I think there is a law in NZ which states that you can go back and dig up any tree formerly on your property it’s within a year and if
        1) you do it in the middle of the night;
        2) leave a tip (usually in the form of animal dung but this does vary from county to county).

          Of course “mustard” was a typo – it should’ve been “curry” – and Linnaeus would’ve written “Murraya koenigii”. It was 4 am here in NZ when I typed things out – (just back from digging up trees) – and it’s now 5 o’clockish. So the difference between mustard and curry at 4 am is a little blurred.

            Oh, I see.

            Naturally I have a Murraya koenigii (several) in my collection.

            They will flower and set seed in a pot, which is good because I like to be able to move stuff around during hurricane season.

            It’s an interesting plant. PubMed has quite a lot of info about it.

              I got three of them when I did a year’s night school course in Indian Cooking. I was the only one to complete all three terms. I have now forgotten most of it, but still have the apron I wore throughout the course.

      And of course so easy to make with any left over pastry – provided your oven’s working – which mine isn’t since it was struck by lightning the other day… Now there’s a title – Death in a Lightning Storm…

      I actually had three curry trees, and all the neighbours would pop in now and again to get some leaves if they were cooking Indian! So it was a very sociable thing to have.

        I get up at 0530 and usually proceed on a stroll (unless I have hit the bed at 0430 but those days are behind me). The same can’t be said of the internet connectivity I have. It may wake up much later or not at all for the day.

          I have to do everything on the Net (well, most things) before 6 am so I usually (at least partially) disappear after 6 am. That means I get up at 4 am – and by the time I end up messing around it’s time to disconnect.
