Today's Harvest

A week on from catching the lurgey (NOT S.F) and I still feel a bit ropey ... I went back to work on Wednesday and am thinking that maybe I should have just spent the rest of the week in bed! Feeling full of cold, combined with three days of social events (dinner with a friend down from Wales, dinner with my three oldest and bestest friends and work friends round for SingStar) resulted in me not having the energy to get out of bed until 5pm last night! I just felt terrible :( I was back in bed again at 9.30pm..... Anyway, today I am still feeling shattered, but have managed three hours gardening in the rain this morning!

Here is what I have picked today ....


Some peas, a couple of carrots and two teeny weeny red onions....



1 kilo of Charlotte potatoes, and

1 kilo of Red Duke Of York potatoes .... I'm still not convinced that the potato barrels are good value for money ....

I was debating as to whether growing potatoes was actually worth it, then by the time I decided what I was going to do (perhaps go for it), it was way past the time for planting such lovliness. Thing is, we get NO sun in our garden apart from the far end...where the shed is! I think it is a miracle that I've not killed my strawberry plant or M's sunflower...which has now finally bloomed! YAY.

Roll on next year....!

Hope you're feeling better? x

It's funny you mention Christmas cakes, we're having our kitchen done at the moment and mum and I have said that when it's finished we're going to christen it by making our Christmas cakes!
