Good morning everyone! Another sunny start to the day here. Yesterday, I finally made it to the allotment! After a particularly nasty meeting I was so fed up with work I decided to jump ship and "don wellies". Best decision I made all week! And I wasn't the only one there either, a couple of friends were making the most of the mild weather and it was really nice to catch up. The plot in much better shape than I thought, I cleared a lot of old plant material. All I have to do today is dig out the fartichokes, a bit of light weeding and dig in the manure in a couple of beds.
I just had a look at your blog Anthony, I'm very impressed with your plans, well thought out! And you've obviously gotten the hang of wordpress quicker than I have, I'm still having some problems with creating pages. But that could be down to the template I chose. I'll put your link up on my blog too, will be posting there tomorrow.
I hope you and Nicola will like my recipe for the rustic macaroons Richard. I still can't get over how easy it is. They come out just as good (if not better) than the expensive ones in the shops here at half the price. Just rmember they're not the fancy and lighter french ones. These are chunky and chewy.
As for the potatoes, I think 'triffids' is the right description ASJ The stems they've put on are too long and fragile to plant I'm afraid. But I'm glad to see you back, are you feeling a bit better now?
It seems my big seed and plant order has arrived, someone in my appartment very kindly took the package from the courier but unforunately is now keeping it hostage. Or, in other words, hasn't been at home when I go to collect it.
I'm still waiting for a late order but I don't think that will take long before it's here either.
Can't wait to see your pics Sue! Isn't it lovely to see new grew shoots coming through the old debris? I had some very nice surprises with plants I didn't think would come back at all, but they have!
Susiq, if you're reading this, get your butt back on here, I miss your chats!
Big hug to you too of course Sis!
