Today ....... I


Dug my potatoes up.



Picked a few tomatoes



A sweetcorn



A courgette or two




A handful of runner beans




And some beetroot.



Fat caterpillars polished off a bit more of my broccali



And O/H's storks line-danced in the sun.

Then it poured down so I went inside and put the kettle on ........

    1. They should last me most of the winter months ... and a few to give away.

  4. I am jealous of your tomato plants. Although I got enough, the plants died early and few tomatoes were full size. All your other plants look wonderful also. The storks are a wonderful addition to the garden.

    1. Hi Arleen, that's a bit sad you lost your tomato plants. Weather conditions can have a lot to do with it

  5. What a lot of lovely potatoes! it's so exciting and comforting too, to eat food you have grown and picked yourself. I love the storks.

    1. I love those storks to. They're something my O/H made when he was well and I want to put them to music.

  6. Like your header picture. I too sat there but I had a pint of Banks's Best Bitter and a 'big bag' of Black Country Pork scratchings. ;-)
    You garden produce looks much healthier. Perhaps one day I'll adopt a healthier diet.
