28 July: Well, we are all set up but have nothing to go into the hole yet apart from a shoulder of lamb bone; I made all the vegetable left overs and gravy into soup! Have to do better than this if we are going to become competent green cone users. We will have to hope between us and our weekly guests we’ll soon be making better use, but it is early days yet!

It sounds more complicated than it probably is!
8 July 2009: We ordered about six weeks ago a Green Cone food digester; one hopes as John suggested, that it hasn’t self-digested en route.
