Winter veg crops

Still wandering down to the veg patch a couple of times a week to pull some veg for tea!

Not a lot, but helps fill out the menu. Probably all have to go in an Asda "wonky" box for quality. And what a good campaign against food waste that is turning into and it is now a mainstream topic. 

Talking of TV we found a treat on BBC4 late one night this last week. "The People's Liners" all about the steamers that used to go from pier to pier each summer. We have been on the Balmoral up the Bristol channel and the Waverley to Ilfracombe in the past so were delighted to hear about the history, the social changes and see all the wonderful footage. A brilliant progamme.

I am delighted to say the rebuild of our workshop outer skin is complete! Just the windows and doors to do and then I can start demanding work in the house be done! No excuse for not having the tools to hand now.

  1. I will have to try and watch The Peoples Liners on catch up, I grew up close to the Bristol Channel and had many a summers day trip on both boats. Lucky you to have veg in your garden.

  3. ive just spotted a couple of weedy kale plants that have sprouted into beauties , so they can go into this weeks bargain basement food plan , though they are about the only thing left down there other than beetroot for the leaves , the garlic is also sprouting manically . Good news is that our new teen slave isnt averse to a bit of manual labour of the digging kind , I was wondering how me and the gammy hip were going to manage that this year
