Most of my bulbs are in troughs, there is just a pack of Narcissi and 50 Muscari bulbs to go in, I need to contain the Muscari or they will take over.
One of the new raised beds now has Spring Cabbage and Curly Kale in it, and a jacket of fleece to keep the cabbage whites off.
The 24 plants are spaced out so I can plant garlic between them, I still have to get that.
This is the new restaurant, all I need to do is buy a stock of wild bird food and make some fat balls, well cubes really as I set the mix in a square tin and just chop it up. I add meal worms for added nutrition when the weather is hard. The little square sticking out in front is for fresh water.. I will hang nets of food under as well.
The Oca that Dawn, Doing it for ourselves in Wales, gave me have flourished. In the bright sunshine they open their very pretty little flowers.
I am looking forward to tipping them out and seeing what I have, I plan on saving some of the tubers to grow next year.
I have been knitting in the evenings, as well as crochet, this little scarf to go with the beanie that I made last week.
This one in a different colour, and will be starting a beanie tonight to go with it. I need to find a new glove pattern, mine has taken itself off somewhere.
I had a nasty turn on Sunday morning, I came into the kitchen to get the kettle on. I did not bother with the light, just pulled the curtains and in my peripheral vision saw this.
I froze, it did not move, I took a step, it still did not move. I turned the light on and hey presto the mouse became a leaf, phew.
Once my heart rate went to normal I made the tea and took it back to bed for a while.
I have been given a subscription to Mollie Makes, lovely, this was advertised inside, but as I had not taken it out myself did not give it another thought.
Well today it arrived, a pretty little machine, just the job for a learner.
I am going to thread it up tomorrow and try it out, if it works well it may become a giveaway.
I feel that I must ask my benefactor if they want it, I will keep you informed.
Did you look at my huge baked beans on my other blog, this is what I did with the left overs.
I layered them up with thinly sliced raw sweet potato, three layers of each finishing with potatoes. Dabbed a little butter on the top and cooked in the oven for 30 minutes.
Served with steamed greens it was an amazing meal, very filling and soooooo tasty.
I have a new recipe to get on the other blog so.
