Absolutely nothing but that is what this post is about...
But first - a layout. I finally scrapped DS's first day at school using the October kit from SBO.
Next DD's 2nd birthday on the 7th. I made her a Very Hungry Caterpillar cake because that is her favourite story right now. Funnily enough, it was DD's fav story too and he got a 'pillar cake for his 2nd birthday. We just had a quiet celebration for her. Nan and Pop came for dinner, and some cousins came for dessert. She liked the cake but didn't know what to do with the candles. Fortunately big brother did!
Now for the garden bit! We (actually DH) dug up the potatoes. We got a pretty good crop with some decent sized ones in there. These are Jersey Bennes.
I had some modest success with my Borlotti beans this year, but I doubt I'll get enough to make a decent stew with. Still, they are so beautiful. My courgette/zuchini is also beautiful but not very prolific. Neither is my cucumber - I'm wondering if it is the lack of bees around.Jenny. The fig tree is looking good for jam this year. Hope the silver eyes leave me some ;-)
Here is my garden as of December. The potatoes on the right are now gone and I've put in some perpetual spinach. The pumpkin on the left is now enormous and I will share a comparative photo once I down load it off the camera.
The plums are ripening so I imagine plum jam is on the project list for the coming weekend. Yum!
