LIVING WITH DIABETES
Mum controls her diabetes well with diet and exercise only, and is now so attuned to how she feels before and after eating she knows exactly what her blood sugar level is and what she needs to do.
So she knew that eating a hot cross bun would increase her blood sugar level to about 11, and we set off on a 30 minute walk to bring it down.
On our way back we stopped off at the Village's vegetable garden. It has about a dozen plots, with quite a few of them producing late crops of tomatoes and the biggest pumpkins I've ever seen on home grown vines. One plot, in particular, had four enormous pumpkins growing in a 6 foot square plot.
The largest of the four pumpkins.
They were absolutely amazing, and I wonder what they taste like?
