Kakai Squash. Trail Food.
The Kakai squash I am told originated in Austria & was grown all through Europe & parts of Asia. This squash or pumpkin has edible hull-less seeds which are very tasty as is, or roasted. Some types apparently have a tastier flesh than others. The one we are growing which you can see in the attached images tastes more like a marrow, but is still very nice.
Roasted Kakai seeds or pepitas.

Do Fewer Guns In A Country Mean Fewer Homicides Will Happen?
Like I said, gun control is NOT the answer. STOP punishing law abiding licenced gun owners in Australia & do something positive about crime!!!

PLEASE SIGN MY PETITION.
Please sign my petition if you DON'T think that a non percussion muzzle-loading pistol is likely to be used by a criminal in this day & age.
I would like to see all non percussion muzzle-loading pistols placed on a non restrictive licence. At present all reproduction muzzle-loading pistols are only available on an "H' class licence & can ONLY be used on a club pistol range. Antiques can not be used at all unless once again they are licenced & registered (NSW). I can find no record of criminal use involving a muzzle-loading pistol in the last 100 years, so this to me only goes to prove that gun control has NOTHING to do with public safety!
