Scott was all of 1 years old today. A bit mesmerised by all the excitement and when everybody gathered around and sang a very loud Happy Birthday he cried, not with happiness but terror! From the expression on his face I am sure he thought we were all mad, but a few minutes of cuddles from his Daddy he recovered enough to smile and forgive us for scaring the daylights out of him.
We had a great harvest yesterday from the plot, 2 cauliflowers, courgettes,white turnips,parsley, broccoli (enough to put in a stir fry), some rudely shaped carrots, these were ones Kathryn was trying out they are supposed to be small and fat but were put into the ground in peat pots and I don't think they liked it.Lots of spuds these are Home guard still.
We are coming to the end of the first and second earlies in this bed and next move on to the main bed with British Queens and Kerr's Pinks which so far have escaped any blight
Summer 2009 is continuing to be a total washout and in the process of evolution those of us living in Ireland may begin growing webbed feet and fins!I cut yet another bunch of Sweet peas from the garden at home, they continue to flower despite wind and rain. I have had about 4 big bunches of them and their fragrance fills the kitchen in the morning. A scent of summer if not the sunshine!
