This will probably be my last post, see what I did there? before we go away.
There isn't a lot of sowing going on at the moment; I don't want to leave lots of things for our very kind neighbours to look after than necessary. However there is some growing going on therefore this is a bit of an update prior to us going away to see where we will be up to at the end of this month.
At the front of the house the sweet peas I planted have just come into flower which is lovely for when people stop to buy the eggs.
I was thinking it was a shame that the small bed in front of the Poly House was looking a bit empty but didn't have room for much to go in it so from this.....
I planted some carrots in a container, can't remember when, and decided to take them up the other day to have them for tea.
I was chuffed that we could eat both our carrots and our own cabbage.
I mentioned the other day to Tracey that I was "baking for the tin" and thought I would share the recipes I used,and use a lot. Jon loves a cut-and-come-again fruit cake I bake; it comes from this Baking bible which has a tonne of useful recipes in.
The method goes as follows;
The second thing I baked were these.
This is a tyre hosting the squash at the bottom and climbing beans up the tripod. No beans off this as sown later than the climbing peas so hopefully harvest will occur some time after we come home.
Take care and I look forward to a loooong read of what everybody has been up to whilst we are away - I am excited just thinking about all you will be sowing, growing and harvesting in the coming weeks.
Bye for now.
