Summer drawing to a close

As you can probably understand, there has been a haiatus from vegetable gardening this year. Baby V has taken up a lot of my time and because she's not yet on her feet I can't take her out there with me as I'd have to sit her on the limestone chips. 

With the help of my mom I have managed to get a few things in the vegge plot; pumpkins and runner beans and some Charlottes seed potatoes from Nath's sister. You can see how those did above, looking good eh. I'm not normally a fan of new potatoes but we recently had a fresh food subscription with HelloFresh. You subscribe to them and they send out a box full of high quality measured ingredients complete with recipe cards for 3 or 5 meals, depending on which option you select. The meat was amazing and the recipies have opened up a lot of new flavours and ideas to me. One recipie had new potatoes in a lovely warm salad, so I remade that dish as soon as my potatoes were ready. Delicious!

End of an era, but start of a new one.

I haven't updated in a while because gardening has taken a back seat for a while. As I mentioned I became pregnant in January 2013 and gardening even using raised beds was been impossible with a bump, I just couldn't fold myself up enough and my walkways were a bit too small for earth mother squatting manoeuvres! My daughter was born in September and is by far the best thing I have ever grown! ❤️ I've had help from my dad today and things are getting back on more veg news soon.

I am sad, so very sad to say my beautiful two Greyhounds Amy and Bobbie have died. Both lived into their 14th year, I am so sad they are no longer here, rest in peace Unsung Hero and Lakers Amy, much missed furry friends x
