A day in the garden.
See the small bed at the back, this was where I was transplating leeks yesterday. Everytime I turned or if it came into shot it got me.It looked like a person. The air was blue yesterday as I bellowed at Mike to move it.
The thing, is Mikes flotation suit. It was one of his christmas presents last year. When Mike & his friend go fishing their tales always used to remind me of the Chuckle Brothers , thats why I bought him the suit. Not that he caught any fish at the weekend by the way.
Anyway back to more important things, the weather here in North Wales was glorious. Instead of attempting to crochet & bake in the afternoon, I spent the entire day outside. The bottom of my back is sun burnt from bending over and weeding, sowing & harvesting.
I also sowed more - florence fennel, radish, spring onion, turnips, swiss chard & spinach. I inspected my runner beans closely yesterday. I still cant see any beans, though there are plenty of flowers. I did however harvest these - my broad beans.
I would like to point out that the bowl you see is in fact a large salad bowl. Not as a cereal bowl which is how it looked to me!
And just to say, I did not neglect my family yesterday by spending the entire day in the garden. I did cook some of these beans with a late Sunday roast last night.
