|Large fruit from the native rosella|
Not realising that the rosellas have lots of tiny little thorns, I unfortunately managed to get at least ten of them imbedded into the quick next to my thumb-nail. This has resulted in a small infection and a very ouchy thumb.
It's probably been a dozen years or so since my last tetanus injection, and I recall it hurt like blazes for a few days after that last shot, so I was a little reluctant to have it again. This injection though, didn't hurt at all, much to my delight and surprise.
I have decided that should I ever pick rosellas again, gloves are an absolute necessity. Who would have imagined that jam making could be so dangerous!
