Saturday Evening out.

After a busy day in the garden we went out with Geoff and Jude (cariadincrete) to our local cafenion, and a good meal was had by all. Souvlaki, village salad, potatoes and a few drinks to wash it all down.

A Bountiful Harvest.

Yesterday was a lovely sunny day, so instead of going up to the house to do some more hard work we decided to go to the garden. As if gardening is not hard work too. The garden has taken the back seat a bit and has been seriously neglected these last couple of months. The order of the day was some tiding up and weeding. I cleared a small piece of ground and turned it over, if I can get some cabbage plants I will plant them there.

Ian cleared all the dried up weeds and we found that the tomatoes had been fruiting away to themselves. There were a few nice red ones and the rest were green. I set about picking these and chutney seems to be on the cards.

What with the weeding and the sunshine we got very thirsty but we had forgotten to bring along a bottle of water. Then it occurred to me the perfect solution! Pick an orange fresh off the tree. Oranges straight from the tree are delicious. Just the job....

I had a quick look at Judes (cariadincrete) garden and there standing like soldiers were her leeks.
Whatever you do don't tell her that I pinched 3!
